The LSU Real Estate and Facilities Foundation, an affiliate of the LSU Foundation, has issued a request for proposals seeking a project adviser for the University Lakes Project in Baton Rouge, LA, with a response deadline of 5 p.m. CST Friday, January 3, 2020.
The RFP invites qualified firms to submit proposals to assist with rehabilitation and improvement of the six lakes adjacent to the LSU campus and City-Brooks Community Park.
The project adviser’s responsibilities will extend through the duration of the project and will include providing financial analysis; assisting with solicitation and selection of a design firm, a contractor and other vendors for design and performance of dredging, excavation and other improvements to the lakes; and assisting with compliance with the restrictions attached to the anticipated funding sources for the project.
The University Lakes Project Management Committee will meet in early January to review the proposals and recommend a project adviser.
The committee anticipates engaging a designer in spring 2020 and engaging a contractor for dredging and construction by January 2021.
