Request for Proposal

Pre-Design of Burnsville City Hall/Police and Maintenance Buildings

The City of Burnsville recently completed a space needs study for the City Hall/Police and Maintenance facilities. As a next step, the City is now seeking proposals from qualified architectural and design firms to perform a pre-design for these buildings. 

The selected firm will work with City of Burnsville staff and decision makers to identify needs and develop options that ensure a high efficiency workplace. Plan options must give flexibility to adapt to future needs, looking out at least 20 years. The consultant will analyze space requirements, identify the constraints and maximum opportunities of the existing sites, develop a Program and Schematic Design which describes all the rooms and spaces for the project, their sizes and specific features, cost estimating, and project phasing. It is essential that the analysis be conducted in a transparent manner and involve the operations staff to the appropriate degree.

City staff have identified eight guiding principles to serve as the foundation for the planning process: Welcoming to the Community, Efficient and Effective, Clear Communication, Sustainable, Functional and Flexible, Healthy, Safe and Fiscally Responsible.  

Key study objectives include:

  • Design welcoming, well-organized facilities oriented to serving our community and promoting inclusion and belonging 
  • Engage project stakeholders during all architectural and design phases
  • Design high-quality facilities that reflect our values of innovation, collaboration and excellence
  • Design a building plan and site plan that is functional for current services and flexible for future changes to services
  • Ensure design uses LEED as a guide for design elements
  • Design meets or exceeds requirements for ADA, building and zoning codes, and wellness goals
  • Design spaces that are safe, secure and welcoming while providing a great public experience
