Questions and answers about the Ho‘opūlama RFP will be posted here.
UPDATE 7/10/13: Ho‘opūlama RFP H13-01 has been withdrawn and reissued as H13-01b.
Do you have a budget for the eventual fabrication and installation phase of the project?
HWC has set a temporary $200,000 target budget. However, the intent of this project is to use the products and presentations from the design phase to spearhead a fundraising campaign for the installation of Ho‘opūlama. Therefore, the $200,000 may be adjusted based on the approved design and future fundraising.
Does the $45,000 design budget need to include travel expenses and Hawaiian excise taxes?
Yes, the design budget needs to be all-inclusive.
Is it correct to say that all of the exhibits are outdoors?
Yes, all exhibits will be installed in exterior open air covered lanais or in the native garden. These areas are exposed to all environmental elements, including wind, rain and humidity.
