Description of Work

UCLA requests a written response to this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the purpose of selecting an Executive Architect for the UCLA Covel Dining Renovation (UCLA Project #946274.01). The project consists of a renovation of the dining area and kitchen support stations of an existing 18,000 square foot student dining facility to support increased capacity. The intent is to address the efficiency of service while refurbishing the finishes.

The construction cost of the project is currently estimated to be approximately $3,500,000. The construction is scheduled to start in March of 2019.

Final selection and appointment of the Executive Architect is contingent upon project approval by the University of California Board of Regents or their delegated authority. This RFQ is for full design services; however, the University reserves the right to defer negotiations concerning services other than the pre-design study until the completion of the pre-design phase. The project is subject to review and approval by the UC Board of Regents or their delegated authority as well as the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

The complete RFQ packet will be available at: on Thursday, November 9, 2017. Responses to the RFQ are due by 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 30, 2017. A screening committee will determine a shortlist of firms; further steps in the selection process will be at the discretion of the selection committee.

Every effort will be made to ensure that all persons have equal access to contracts and other business opportunities with the University within the limits imposed by law or University policy. Each candidate firm may be required to show evidence of its equal employment opportunity policy.
