Notice of Requested Architectural and Engineering Services

Notice is hereby given of the commencement of the selection process for architectural and engineering services. The College of Education is located in Bluemont Hall on the Kansas State University Campus. Many of the essential student functions of the college are located in the basement level of the building. These functions which include the college’s leadership and the Center for Student Success (recruitment and advising) need to be relocated to the first floor for better student access and recruitment.

Approximately half of the first floor (12,500 square feet), needs to be renovated to accommodate these essential student functions. The renovation needs to not only be functional but also attractive and facilitate the recruitment of students to the college. This would include better identification of the College of Education and way finding to these essential functions. The new office suites should be adjacent to open lobby space and a central reception to accommodate our students and visitors. An enhanced entrance dedicated to the college that is both accessible and attractive is a high priority. Interior visual connections to the exterior are highly desirable as well. The existing classroom space on the first floor will be reduced as per KBOR guidance and what college-controlled classrooms are remaining will be enhanced.

Infrastructure changes that are necessary for the renovated space will be addressed as well. The vacated basement will be occupied by NACADA. Project funding sources are TBD.
