GSA working with the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Commission (EMC) announces an opportunity for Design Excellence in public design for performance of Architectural-Engineering Design Services for the new National Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial in accordance with GSA quality standards and requirements.

The National Eisenhower Memorial at Eisenhower Square will be the first national presidential memorial of the new century. No language currently exists for a 21st century memorial. Eisenhower Square is an opportunity to explore new avenues in memorialization. The competitive designer and design team selection process will embrace the widest possible range of innovative concepts and ideas. It is intended that the physical memorial will have a very significant electronic component. Thus there can be a strong visual statement about Eisenhower and also allow for a depth of information as wanted. The result will be a new vision of memorialization: a new paradigm for memorials.

Scope of Work:

The scope of work will require at a minimum: architectural, landscape, site, lighting, graphic, and information/exhibit and engineering design; value and life cycle engineering, and definition of sustainable and energy saving features drawings, specifications, cost estimates, schedules, structural calculations.

Stage I Submittals:

Lead Designers and their A/E Design Firms having the capabilities to perform the services described in the announcement are invited to respond by submitting the SF-330 (for the A/E Design Firm), which must not be dated more than twelve (12) months before the date of this announcement, along with the letter of interest and the portfolio to:
