Model School Program - Request for Qualifications to Provide Prototypical School Designs

RFQ Response Deadline: February 4, 2016 (3:00 PM) 


The Massachusetts School Building Authority (“MSBA”), intends to identify, “collect and maintain a clearinghouse of prototypical school designs that may be used by eligible Districts” for MSBA funding.  Under the Model School Program, the MSBA intends to select the design of one or more existing schools (“model schools”) meeting certain criteria and to pre-qualify the designer of each selected model school. The MSBA, in collaboration with school districts participating in the Model School Program, may select one of the pre-qualified model schools and its Designer, and the school district will enter into a contract with the selected Designer for design services. The Designer of the selected model school will be required to adapt the design to a suitable site within the school district and tailor the design to the required design enrollment and programmatic needs of the district.

Interested applicants are encouraged to attend a non-mandatory informational meeting regarding this RFQ on January 6th, 2016 from 2:00-3:00 in the MSBA board room (5th floor) located at 40 Broad St. Boston, MA. Questions from participants and answers will be posted on the MSBA website by January 22, 2016.
