The following questions have been submitted and the associated answers are listed below. The information below shall be considered included in the RFQ packet and considered in submission packets.

Q - Has the City established any additional information regarding scope of the project – budget, square footage, etc.?
A – While the city does not currently have a budget set for this project, it is anticipated that the new station will be approximately 8,500 SF +/- (including the apparatus bay) and would function in a similar manner to the existing SIU Satellite Fire Station located at 783 Northwest University Drive.

Q - Review of information available on the Madison County website suggests this property is currently not within City limits. What is the City’s plan for annexation?
A – It is correct that this parcel is not currently within the corporate boundaries of the City of Edwardsville. The parcel for the proposed Station will be annexed prior to the beginning of construction.

Q - Occupying the facility by the fourth quarter of 2022 as the RFQ suggests is an aggressive schedule in the current construction market. Is the City considering alternate procurement methods such as Design-Build or Construction Manager as Advisor?
A – The city is intending to follow the traditional Design – Bid – Build method for this project. This RFQ applies only to the design component.
