The scope of this project is to plan, design and remodel approximately 160,000 S.F. of the Building
3 on the State of Idaho’s Chinden Campus, located at 11311 W. Chinden Blvd. Boise, ID 83714.
The building consists of the lower level, middle/mezzanine, and upper level. It was previously
occupied as an open concept space with perimeter stairwells, restroom facilities, conferencing areas,
offices, and a data center on the upper level.
The tenant improvement/remodel will include but not be limited to: demolition; creation of a new
entry plaza, construction of new offices, conference and huddle areas, breakrooms, workrooms and
standard office support spaces; new storefront, exterior and interior doors and hardware; preparation
for and coordination of owner provided workstations; all new finishes; window coverings; signage;
security/access systems; low voltage and data networks; mechanical, electrical, LED lighting,
lighting upgrades, new lighting controls; plumbing; fire sprinkler and fire alarm replacement; and
new direct digital controls; with possible upgrades to the electrical switchgear and air handling
units. Construction of a temporary circulation corridor on the first floor may also be required.
Design Builder will need to coordinate work and site activities as needed to support other Owner
managed activities such as asbestos abatement, roof repair/replacement, and major campus
infrastructure upgrades.
Space allocation will adhere to State of Idaho, Office Space Standards (Attachment D). Scope of
work could be expanded to include a Data Center expansion and upgrades located in another

construction documents, and construction. The design team members shall be licensed to practice
in the State of Idaho for their specific disciplines.

management system, Projectmates. Documents may include, but are not limited to meeting minutes,
sketches, diagrams, programming analysis, photographs relevant to the project, drawings, project
manual, schedules, cost estimates, etc.

Manager for the purpose of providing a verbal report regarding the previous months progress. Such
monthly meetings will show funds expended in the completion of the project, specific
accomplishments related to the completion of the project, presentation of updated contingency log
and look ahead schedule for identifying work progress.

and/or Permanent Building Fund Advisory Council (PBFAC).
