Notice of Requested Architectural Services

Notice is hereby given of the commencement of the selection process for architectural services for the Marcus Welcome Center Addition and Interior Finish Upgrade at Wichita State University. This project will bring together the Office of Industry Engagement & Applied Learning and the Career Development Center within an addition to the Marcus Welcome Center on the north end of campus. Locating these services alongside the admissions team will highlight the importance of applied learning and career development to prospective students at the beginning of their higher education journey. The approximately 8,000 gross square foot addition will create a new entry point on the south side of the building and will provide a connection to the Innovation Campus and pedestrian mall. The project also includes an interior finish refresh of the public areas of the building (reception/lobby/lecture theater) as well as opening up the corridor outside of the existing event rooms to create a “history walk” to feature WSU artifacts from the WSU Alumni Center collection. The project construction budget is $2,920,000.
