Deadline Oct. 8: RFQ for Concept Design Services

RFQ for Concept Design Services to Demonstrate Adaptable and New Uses for Downtown Business Districts Designing for Distance

Deadline to submit a response

Thursday, October 8, 2020 by 11:59 PM EST

The Pennsylvania Downtown Center (PDC) is seeking expressions of interest from architecture, landscape architecture, planning, and other interested design professionals who would like to participate in a series of small-scale design projects related to the implementation of social distancing in historic communities.

Selected firms will help the communities of Easton, Erie, Lewisburg, and Reading develop design-based solutions to specific social distancing-related challenges affecting the public realm. Recognizing that sometimes a picture speaks a thousand words, the goal of the Designing for Distance program is to provide municipal leaders and the community revitalization organizations with practical design and planning solutions and accompanying implementation strategies to help their businesses adapt to the difficult circumstances created by COVID-19.

This demonstration project is a partnership between the Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office (PA SHPO) and Pennsylvania Downtown Center, Inc. (PDC), the state coordinator with the National Main Street Center/Main Street America and the technical assistance and education partner with the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Keystone Main Street and Keystone Elm Street programs.

Firms responding to this RFQ will be evaluated based on their credentials and experience as described below. A short list of firms who best meet the desired qualifications will be reviewed by PDC, the Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office, and representatives from the communities. One firm/team will be selected to work with each community based on the fit with the project and proximity.
