PUBLIC WORKS PROJECT NO. 2016-25
The City of Commerce ("City") is issuing this Request for Statement of Qualifications (RFP) to complete design its Citywide Wayfinding Project, PW Project No. 2016-25. The City seeks Statements of Qualifications (SOQ's) from qualified firms for the delivery of a wayfinding design that is both functional as well as reflective of the unique City of Commerce brand.
Incorporated in 1960, the City of Commerce ("City") is 6.5 square miles, located in southeast Los Angeles County, bordering adjacent communities of Vernon, Montebello, Bell, Bell Gardens, Maywood, Downey, and unincorporated East Los Angeles. In 2014, the City's population was estimated to be approximately 13,076, spread across the City at four distinct residential districts. The City is largely industrial and manufacturing in scope, but also anchored by high-end retail and entertainment, such as the Citadel Outlets and the Commerce Casino. The City is strongly committed to serving the "quality of life" for its residents and businesses, befitting its motto: " The Model City".
PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVE:
The goal of the Citywide Wayfinding Project is to implement a functional and integrated system which markets Commerce and communicates that the City is unique, friendly and organized through helping visitors more easily find their way to intended and discovered locations. A high priority will be placed on designing a sustainable and successful system that meets all of the project goals while still remaining within budget.
The City seeks the delivery of a city-wide wayfinding plan and specifications that are both functional as well as reflective of the unique Commerce brand. The Commerce brand is influenced by the city's dedication to providing exemplary service to its residents and as a regional destination due to attractions such as the Commerce Casino and the Citadel Outlets.
The selected respondent will develop signage design and fabrication specifications for a city-wide wayfinding system based on input from City stakeholders.
