Stadium A/E Shortlist and more

FAU - AE CM

Looks like A/E is down to a shortlist…..

HOK Sport, Inc                  Kansas City, MO.
HKS/SchenkelShultz      West Palm Beach, FL.
Ellerbe Becket                  Kansas City, MO.

Interviews:  July 15, 2008 9:00am, Campus Operations Building (69) Room 118

….. and after a final interview we will have the A/E for our Stadium.  Can anyone go to this, not the meeting but maybe to talk with the Univ Architect and see how it went.  Does government in the sunshine apply here?

And I wonder if we can get plans for the HOK vs. the Ellerbe Becket vs. HKS/SchenkelShultz.  It seems like HKS/SchenkelShultz are the only ones weve seen (flythrough).


Also Construction Manager advertisement has gone out and preliminary proposals are due next week.

Moving right along, money or not!

Just noticed something… two of these companies are listed as being Kansas City, MO companies.

A little while back we were tipped off that FAU was having long conversations with a Kansas City company and we thought that it was in regards to naming rights… maybe it was just to go over the "stadium vision" so the companies could then set out to do their proposals…

P.S. I don't respond to guest posts. All guests are encouraged to register with the site.

Mention this to Ted on his blog. He is a reporter, he can go report.  :)

Re: Stadium A/E Shortlist and more

If public money is not being used for this event, and if public officials aren't present at the meeting, Sunshine Law does not apply. However, it would be interesting to find out what defines a public official. Technically, if you are getting paid by state funds (i.e. FAU state employee) you are a public official. That's why all of their salaries were made public years ago in the University Press cover story.

This process should be disclosed, and it pretty much is on the FAU website….but even though we have no real power to choose which A/E firm to go with, It would be nice to see the different proposals that are being offered up.  I know FAU has these, just have to find them or ask for them.

I got a response from the Media Relations Department, so I should be getting these proposals pretty soon (this week).

Ok good news, the request got approved, and there are 120 pages of it.  If you guys want to review it you can set up a time or its $18 to have them make copies and send it to you.  They don't have it in electronic format, so thats that.  I emailed Ted to see if he would be willing to gather the documents and get them up on the internet for all to enjoy.
