SUNY Construction Fund Request for Qualifications
Additional information regarding this RFQ:
1) The approximate floor areas for renovation are as follows:

Floor Gross SF Area Comments
Basement 3,000 For Information Commons (ITS)
First Floor 15,000 Reference Area and Reading Room reconfiguration, CADE program
Second Floor 5,000 For SDS program
Third Floor N/A To be determined during Program/Concept
Total 23,000 Estimated
Note that this is an approximation only. The program/concept phase will more accurately define necessary renovation areas of each floor as the design is developed.

2) There are no major structural components. Compact shelving not involved in this project.
3) AV/instructional technology will be included in the project
4) There is likely to be a small acoustic consultant involvement

From: Maria Thompson
To: Charles O’Bryan
Subj.: Library Master Plan
Pursuant to the announcement that a large construction project for Milne Library improvements, you are directed to formulate a Facilities Master Plan for the Milne Library. While this is very exciting news, it presents many challenges and represents a considerable amount of staff work.
The plan is requested to include but not be limited to the following:
· Vision for the Library of 2020
· Incorporation of new services, including Disabilities Services, the Center for Teaching Excellence, and CADE (tutoring)
· Incorporation of Technologies
· Space management (especially classrooms)
· Plan for the layout and management of the paper collection
· Facilities for the other stakeholders including, but not limited to, OAS (Jazzman’s), Geography, Women’s Studies, and IT
· Space program for the facility
· Suggested locations for the various new spaces
· Sustainable infrastructure
Feel free to call upon Scott Barton, Tom Rathbone, and Phil Bidwell for assistance in this important task. While they will be important in the process, you, as the Director of Milne Library, will be the project coordinator and have oversight over the process. Similarly, you are encouraged to seek out staff participation as well as the input of the Library Committee
Upon completion of this Master Plan, the college will be employing the services of a design professional, who will validate this program prior to starting the actual project design.
Please keep me apprised on a regular basis on your progress. I deeply appreciate all you do in the leading the library in these times of change.
The Steering Committee is involved in the initial planning for a potential $8 million dollar program funded by the State University Construction Fund.
