The Indianapolis Bond Bank is looking for firms interested in working on the city’s new criminal justice center—from providing civil engineering services to mechanical, electrical and plumbing work.

The bond bank released a “request for qualifications” on June 9 for 17 design services associated with the project, with submissions due June 27. The city will select chosen contractors sometime after Aug. 1.

The new jail, an assessment and intervention facility, and the courts will be moving to a new complex at the former Citizens Gas and Coke Utility plant just southeast of downtown. The plant closed in 2007.

The new complex is expected to cost upwards of $575 million, and is part of Mayor Joe Hogsett’s overall criminal justice reform efforts.

The RFQ notes that selections are “not based on competitive bidding, but on professional qualifications, competence, documented experience and the expertise of key personnel."
