International Existing Building Code Analysis - Downtown Mesa - RFP Announcement - Adaptive Reuse

A Request for Proposal (RFP) is being advertised for use in submitting information that will be used to select a firm/individual with whom the Neighborhood Economic Development Corporation (NEDCO) hopes to negotiate an agreement for the described services.

Consultant will perform an analysis of a certain number of existing structures in downtown Mesa in accordance with Chapter 14 of the 2015 International Existing Building Code with the purpose of creatively analyzing what alterations, repairs, or additions would be needed to achieve potential changes of occupancy without requiring full compliance with Chapters 5 through 13, except where compliance with other provisions is specifically required by the 2015 IEBC.

It will be essential for the consultant to think creatively and critically about the opportunities of each individual building and the most cost-efficient way to meet the goal of maintaining or increasing the current degree of public safety, health and general welfare in the building. The consultant will be expected to work in concert with the City of Mesa’s Building Safety department.

Responses will be accepted until Friday, January 29, 2016. A copy of the full RFP is available on the NEDCO website at nedco-mesa.org/IEBCRFP.html.
