New School of Business – Advance Planning and Design Services

Project Summary

October 13, 2016 

CLOSING DATE: November 22, 2016



This project is funded at $23,000,000 by the approved Connect NC 2016 Bond Program but a Capital Campaign to raise as much as $13,000,000 in additional funding is planned and underway. Any additional funds raised during the Capital Campaign for changes to the project scope will be identified not later than December 31, 2017. Any increase in funding will result in an amended Design Contract. The project will provide advanced planning and design services to provide a New School of Business. The project includes the demolition of an existing parking lot and the construction of an approximately 60,000 GSF new building that will support teaching and research, community outreach and professional partnerships in an integrated, state of the art facility. The proposed building structure will offer a unique, flexible configuration that promotes interdisciplinary collaboration, student engagement and community connections. Additionally, the design will compliment and strengthen the UNCP Master Plan and will promote sustainability design features in the new building. Full programing of the facility will be initially conducted. The building will house the Faculty (31 Professors), Adjunct Faculty (10 Professors and Lecturers) and Administrative staff (6) of the School of Business. The School of Business includes the following programs;

Accounting and Finance

Economics and Decision Sciences

Management, Marketing, and International Business


The designer shall have experience in High Performance Building design. A guiding design principle will be a high-energy efficiency building with low recurring costs. Experience with geo-thermal applications, day-lighting strategies, photovoltaic roof panels, gray water applications, and storm water BMP’s is highly preferred.

The selected designer will work under the standard State Construction Contract and will be required to provide all necessary site surveys and fieldwork. Designers will have access to University archives, but must provide their own copies of documents requested. Designers must provide a project cost estimate for the Advanced Planning Phase that will include schematic design. This project will be a Construction Manager at Risk project; therefore, the Designer will work with the Construction Manager to determine the final cost for the construction project. Upon completion of Advanced Planning, UNCP in conjunction with the designer will determine the final scope of work/cost and continue on with the standard design development phase, construction document phase and construction administration. The Construction Management at Risk contractor will be selected after review of proposals and individual interviews of at least three contractors.. The designer will be expected to coordinate any additional work required such as surveys and geotechnical testing and receive payment as a reimbursable. Design work for IT infrastructure is also required as is programming assistance and site analysis to determine the optimum siting for this facility in the context of the University Master Plan. The following additional scope will be required:

  1. Provide a IT programming and design consultant as part of the design team
  2. Perform Site analysis
  3. Site study and assistance relating to the siting of this building and its impact on existing campus facilities.


Designers are requested to send one copy of their SF 330, along with any brochures or other illustrative material to the contact. There is no page limit for your submission. Additional information on this project is not currently available. Due to the volume of projects being handled by the Facilities Planning and Construction office, and in fairness to all interested designers, individual visits from designers to discuss this project will not be scheduled. Designers however may feel free to make an unescorted site visit to campus.

Submissions will be examined by the School of Business Building Committee, which will select a short list for an interview. Designers being short-listed for an interview will be invited to campus for a site visit, and interview briefing. The interviews will be held consecutively, with firms being allowed an equal amount of time for their presentations. Following the interview, the Building Committee will make its recommendation to the University Board of Trustees, who will select the designer.


The selected firm will work directly with the Assistant Vice chancellor for Facilities Management, Director of Facilities Planning and Construction and a building committee.


The schedule is to be negotiated.


Please include the following critical factors in your submission relating to this work:

  • Experience with similar projects
  • Experience of designing within a university context
  • Track Record for being on time/on budget
  • Cost estimating and scheduling services
  • Qualifications of members of the proposed project team
  • Your Project Leader
  • Your proposed Consultants including an IT consultant


In order that the interview and selection process be as objective as possible, you are directed not to communicate with any of the University Trustees or any one at the University regarding this project. Email communication is preferred. Direct your questions and submissions to:
