FINAL SELECTION – The University Selection Comittee has determined that the following firm is the most qualified to provide the requested services: John Friedman Alice Kimm Architects (Los Angeles, CA).

Description: California, Santa Barbara (“University”) from design professionals and firms with relevant experience and expertise in providing detailed project programming, cost planning/budgeting, full design services, preparation of bidding documents and construction administration services for the construction of the Associated Students Bike Shop project (“Project”) on the main campus of UC Santa Barbara, as more fully described in Request for Qualifications (“RFQ”) No. FM200242.

Serving the UC Santa Barbara and Isla Vista community since 1974, the Associated Students Bike Shop is a student-funded, non-profit organization that provides free or subsidized bicycle repair, parts and education. It offers the most competitive pricing in the region. Lead by a passionate team, the Bike Shop serves an average of 4,400 students, faculty, and staff each quarter with repairs and resources. Its mechanics are trained to work on bikes of all ages and from all over the world.

Currently located near Campus Pools and Parking Lot 29, the Bike Shop was considered temporary when it was constructed in 2010.
