Tribe Releases RFP for Commercial HVAC Consultant

Tribal Leaders have asked “What is the best option for the HVAC upgrade?” as they consider whether it is reasonable to maintain the current HVAC system or to replace it with a more energy efficient up to date system as they plan to increase utilization of the Tribal Center Building.

The Snoqualmie Tribe is soliciting a request for proposal (RFP) from experienced Engineers, or qualified consulting firms, with proven experience, resources, and professional expertise to provide direction on how to improve the HVAC system of the Tribal Center for the Snoqualmie Tribe. The project should consist of a study assessing various options for use at the Tribal Center Building (formerly the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital) located at 9575 Ethan Wade Way SE; Snoqualmie, Washington.

The Snoqualmie Tribe wishes to have a more comprehensive understanding of the HVAC system of the Tribal Center Building to help guide their decision-making. The analysis, reports, and products of this engagement may be used to make decisions about the feasibility of various options including:

  • Maintaining the current HVAC system
  • Replacing the current HVAC system and move to a more modern and energy efficient HVAC system.

The selected consultant will consider the condition of the existing HVAC system and condition of the building elements as well as the various competing potential uses of the building for Tribal Government. The consultant may also consider the culturally important historical connection for many tribal members to the building.

Please remit an electronic version of the consultant’s proposal no later than noon Pacific Daylight Savings Time on December 1, 2017 to: 

Virgil Wade, General Manager 
Snoqualmie Indian Tribe
