Posted By: Todd Dunkelberg
Date Posted: 2/13/2019
Deschutes Public Library District (hereinafter referred to as “DPL”) is requesting proposals for Architectural Conceptual Design. DPL will accept responses until no later than March 12, 2019 at 4pm PST at the Deschutes Public Library, 507 NW Wall St., Bend, OR 97703 and will ultimately result in an exclusive contract to meet DPL’s needs.
DPL is initiating this RFP to solicit Proposals from Firms interested in participating on a project to provide conceptual design for up to six (6) DPL locations. Of the six locations, one (1) structure will be expanded, one (1) new structure will be constructed and the remaining four (4) locations will have varying degrees of remodel and space reallocation.
DPL is seeking a qualified engineering consultant or consulting partners to partner with the Library to build upon and complete a 21st century preliminary design and space use proposal for the public.
A Facilities Capital Plan was conducted in 2018 and accepted by the Board of Directors in 2018. This study laid the groundwork for continued conversation within the community for the need for updated library facilities in Deschutes County. The next phase in preliminary design work will build upon that study for a likely bond measure to the community. The final report can be accessed here: https://www.deschuteslibrary.org/about/news/news?NewsID=6210. The conceptual design work will be brought to the public for further dialogue.
This RFP, including contract terms, conditions and specifications, may be obtained from Todd Dunkelberg, Director of DPL and shall be available for review at the above address beginning February 13, 2019 until closing. Sealed proposals can be hand delivered or mailed to Todd Dunkelberg at the above address. No faxed or emailed proposals will be accepted. No proposals will be received after closing.
Proposals will be opened directly after 4pm on March 12, 2019. Per DPL Rule 137-047-0300(3)(d), no prequalification for proposers is required. Selection committee members may not be contacted or solicited.
