Beach Casino Building Request for Qualifications (RFQ) - Opening of Responses

Today was the deadline and opening of the responses for architectural firms. The responses come from the RFQ the ciy issued late last year related to the rehabilitation of the existing casino building.  A small group gathered in the "Pioneer" conference room (where did the pioneers go - the list that was on the west wall?) at 2 p.m.  Purchasing staff made multiple trips delivering what turned out to be fifteen responses to the conference room table.  All were found to be "responsive" - meaning that they meet the criteria and requirements of the RFQ.  Three of the firms responding were Lake Worth architectural companies:  Gestalt, Living Designs Group and West Architects.

The contents of what was submitted will be available on the city's website sometime in the near future - most submitted digital versions of their responses.

Below are the sheets used by staff to list the respondents and check off whether they satisfied the demands of the RFQ.

Some thoughts on the implications of this later.
