Sealed proposals will be received by the Division of Public Works, State of Idaho, at 502 N. 4th St., PO Box 83720,
Boise, Idaho 83720-0072 until 2:00 pm local time, on Thursday, August 13, 2020 for DPW Project 20541 IDPR:
Thousand Springs Visitor Center, Hagerman, Idaho.
A description of the work of this project can be summarized to include a 3,500 sf Visitor Center at Thousand Springs
State Park with associated access road, parking lots and septic system and native landscaping in selected areas. The
design is simple and functional, using locally produced materials such as cedar siding to blend in with the surroundings
and climate. Weathered steel canopies and covered patios will provide protection for indoor and outdoor experiences.
Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPS) will be used for the exterior walls to reduce the construction time and costs for
labor, while providing a superior thermal envelope to reduce energy consumption.
The interior spaces will be shared by Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation (IDPR) and National Park Service
(NPS) staff with offices, interpretive center, and restrooms. The structure will allow visitors to obtain information
regarding the various units of Thousand Springs State Park as well as surrounding recreational opportunities. The
structure will also co-house the Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument Visitor Center allowing for outreach and
interpretive contact with NPS employees.
Proposals will be opened and publicly read at the above hour and date.
