The Oak Park and River Forest High School District 200 Board of Education recently approved a timeline for selecting an architect of record. The board voted unanimously in favor of the timeline at its regular meeting on April 26.
District officials are scheduled to send out a request for qualifications on June 1. The bids are due by July 18. Between July and August, the district will identify three finalists and conduct interviews. The district is expected to approve an architect of record by September.
The Chicago-based firm Legat Architects has been the district’s architect of record since 2010, when they replaced Wight and Company, based in Darien.
Currently, the district also contracts with Perkins and Will, which is consulting with Imagine OPRF — the working group responsible for creating master facilities plan recommendations.
