INTERVIEWS WITH ARCHITECTURAL FIRMS FOR TOWN HALL <br /> PROJECT <br /> Council interviewed representatives from the following architecture firms: <br /> BSA Architects, CJW Architecture and Mock/Wallace Architects. BSA and <br /> Mock/Wallace were located in San Francisco. CJW Architecture had its <br /> offices in Portola Valley. The firms had submitted proposals for the <br /> preliminary site plan, floor plan and construction cost estimates for a new <br /> Town Hall Building. <br /> Each firm described projects they had completed or were working on and <br /> outlined the process they generally followed. Depending on Council's <br /> preference, this process may include the formation of a citizens' group for input <br /> and comment on the project and/or workshops to share ideas and to create a <br /> sense of ownership for the project. Each firm noted that the quicker the <br /> decisions were made as to what was wanted for the design of a new Town Hall, <br /> the faster the project would be completed. Each firm also stated that they had <br /> been involved in fundraising efforts and this could include events, mailings, <br /> bricks, commemorative tiles, naming of rooms/wings, etc. When advised by <br /> the Mayor that she wanted groundbreaking for this building within a year, they <br /> each noted that this would be possible if the decision making process for the <br /> design went forward quickly. <br /> June 22, 2001 <br /> Special City Council Meeting <br /> 1 <br /> J <br />
