RICHMOND-The Maymont historic site in Richmond has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for architectural and engineering design services for upcoming major expansion projects.
Maymont is seeking bids from firms to help with upgrades to the Maymont Mansion as well as the park’s wildlife habitats.
The successful bidder will design and coordinate the construction phase of the two projects, which are being funded by an $8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration. This grant is part of the EDA’s American Rescue Plan Travel, Tourism, and Outdoor Recreation program, which is designed to promote and expand regional tourism and outdoor recreation in Virginia.
Maymont plans to raise $2 million in matching funds for the estimated $10 million project, which is scheduled for completion in 2024 just ahead of Maymont’s 100th anniversary as a public space in 2025.
The renovation and expansion projects involve replacement of the roof of the Maymont mansion and upgrades to its HVAC system as well as improvements and additions to the park’s wildlife habitats.
Proposals are due by Wednesday, December 21 at 2pm. A mandatory pre-proposal bidder conference will be held on December 8 at 10am. Any firm seeking more information or interested in submitting a proposal should email Owner Representative Shea Willis at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 804-358-9492, ext. 340.
