Request for Statement of Qualifications
Architectural, Landscape Architectural & Engineering Services

Overview of Request
The Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks (“Metro Parks”) issues this Request for Statement of Qualifications (SOQ) to establish a list of Architectural, Landscape Architectural & Engineering firms (including civil, mechanical, electrical, architectural, landscape architectural & surveying) to be used for future projects. Metro Parks may select a single design professional or firm for any project with an estimated professional design fee of less than fifty thousand dollars ($50,000), as provided under ORC 153.71 Administrative Rules. The Metro Parks shall determine that the selected design professional or firm is the most qualified to provide the required professional design services.

Many of these projects take place within a natural resource-based setting in which every effort is made to integrate capital improvement projects into the natural landscape, to protect sensitive areas, and to minimize impacts to high-quality natural areas and wildlife habitat.

The specific future projects may require professional architectural and engineering services for feasible studies, design and
architectural / engineering contract documents, permitting, surveying, cost estimating, construction observation, and other services (including civil, mechanical, electrical, architectural & landscape architectural work). Projects will vary in scope, from large and small building construction to regional trails to the implementation of large-scale Master Plan. The projects may include, but are not limited to:
 building renovation and restoration
 historic building evaluation and restoration
