Depending on the sites selected, the proposed architectural contract will include the completion of three or more of the following distinct design tasks:
The detached ADU should be a one-bedroom, one bath, design of approximately 500 square feet in size. It should be high quality but simple in design with high energy efficiency, long-lasting materials and ease of construction in mind. Incorporated into the design should be state-of-the-art water conservation appliances and fixtures, landscaping materials and equipment and a gray water and/or water catchment system, both as a water conservation demonstration and as a way to minimize the need for additional water allocation by the City. The ADUs will utilize the same water meters currently in place for the existing homes.
In keeping with the Seaside Housing Element’s Goal H-7 Policy to encourage universal design, the ADUs should meet universal design standards, if practical given site conditions. This should provide, at a minimum, wheelchair access to the front and rear entrances, in the hallways and doorways, and with appropriate grab bars in the bathroom.
All questions regarding this RFP should be directed via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All questions and answers will be distributed to any person or firm who has expressed interest. Any questions must be submitted no later than Monday, December 2, 2019.
