For Ravinia Business District First Phase Sign Installation Survey & Preparation of Bid Drawings in the City of Highland Park, Illinois

The City of Highland Park is seeking a qualified engineering firm to provide surveying services and develop construction documents (plans and specifications) for multiple types of signage based on approved conceptual designs in the Ravinia Business District (RBD) in the City of Highland Park. A Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District was established in the RBD in 2005, and the City has been planning for long-term infrastructure and streetscape improvements in the immediate area.

After the completion of a streetscape study in 2012, an RBD Advisory Committee and the Highland Park City Council have supported and approved the design, construction and installation of select signage in the Ravinia District as a near-term goal.

There are currently no drawings with sufficient detail to fabricate and install the selected signage or current survey documents for the project area related to streetscape improvement work. Streetscape improvement strategies, to date, have consisted of conceptual design. The scope of requested services will result in deliverables suitable for bidding the installation of public improvements and themed signage within the public right-of-way.
