Committee Selects Architect for New Easton Elementary School


The Board of Education approved the recommendation made by TCPS Facilities Manager Kevin Shafer on behalf of the Easton Elementary School Project Steering Committee to pursue a contract for engineering and design services for the project with Noelker and Hull Associates, Inc., a firm based in Frederick, MD.

The Project Steering Committee was comprised of representatives from the Talbot County Council, the Board of Education, the NAACP, TCPS Staff, school administrators, and parents.

Noelker and Hull is one of three firms asked to participate in the Request for Proposal (RFP) Process.  Each participating firm submitted a 50-page proposal.  Each firm’s design team subsequently went through a 50-minute interview process.

Through that process committee members ranked the three firms using a matrix of criteria.  Once the ranking was complete, each firm’s fee proposal was reviewed.  Noelker and Hull was selected based on both the fee proposal and the committee’s rankings.

The two other firms that participated in the RFP Process were Becker Morgan Group, Inc. and Grimm and Parker Architects.  “All three firms were represented well in the process,” said Shafer.  “The committee’s decision was difficult because of the quality submissions by all three firms.”
