REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS (RFQ)

FOR ASSESSMENT AND FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR REPURPOSING THE HISTORIC WYOMING STATE HOSPITAL CAMPUS

FOR

THE CITY OF EVANSTON

EVANSTON AND UINTA COUNTY WYOMING

(Issued on February 13th, 2021)

The City of Evanston and Uinta County Wyoming, referred to herein as “EV/UC”, are seeking qualifications to provide Architectural and Engineering Services related to an Assessment and Feasibility Study for repurposing selected Buildings on the Wyoming State Hospital Campus. The specific nature of the scope of work for the project is outlined in the following Request for Qualifications (RFQ). The Statement of qualifications may be submitted either electronically to: [email protected] or physically to the City of Evanston, Community Development Office at 1200 Main Street, Evanston Wyoming 82930, by 4:00 p.m., local time, on 02/25/2021. Statements of Qualifications will be labeled with the following statement: “WYOMING STATE HOSPITAL RFQ ENCLOSED.” No additional responses will be received thereafter. Physical copies of each Statement of Qualifications must be submitted with five (5) individual copies.

  1. Introduction and History

The entire historic campus of the Wyoming State Hospital, which is presently owned by the Wyoming Department of Health, spans nearly 100 acres, and is comprised of 35 structures. Indeed, the institution is older than the State of Wyoming itself, as the very first building was constructed in 1887 when Wyoming was still a territory. The earliest of the facilities currently on the site were built between 1913 and 1923, and the entirety of the property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This campus has been an integral part of our community history and economy. This facility has employed between 400 and 500 healthcare professionals on a consistent basis for nearly 150 years. While these jobs will continue at the new hospital, the Historic buildings will be vacated. In fact, several buildings in this area of the historic campus have been unoccupied for many years. Without proper care and reutilization, these majestic and quite useable structures at this time, will only further deteriorate and become less appealing for reinvestment. Therefore, time is of the essence to create this plan and develop a strategy to promote and showcase these extraordinary structures for economic redevelopment and vitality.

  • 100 Acres, 35 buildings, 600,000sqft
  • 150 years old
  • Opportunity Zone
  • Adjacent to I-80 and Downtown

Historic Buildings: Identify and capitalize on the location, significance, and potential for reuse and/or renovation of historic resources.

Historic Preservation: Encourage a commitment to the adaptive reuse of vacant buildings to new uses, an investment in architecturally unique and culturally historic structures, and the creation of economic incentives to promote neighborhood preservation and revitalization. Work with local stakeholders on the historic preservation education and renovation of historic buildings.

Vibrant Campus: Enhance the cohesiveness and identity of the campus and surrounding recreation by encouraging a healthy mixture of commercial, residential, educational, cultural and other uses that support the everyday needs of the residents.

The City of Evanston continues to develop its riverfront walk paths, extend the “Greenway” path throughout the City, improve the bike lane network and transit network, explore opportunities for art, culture, and recreation, maintain infrastructure, foster neighborhood excellence, and implement design standards in its community development and planning initiatives.
