Design/Architect quotes being accepted for new headquarters

Foundation 2 Crisis Services is a medium-sized non-profit located in eastern Iowa providing crisis mental health and supportive services across the state.  Our “Headquarters Project”  will combine multiple smaller offices scattered across the Cedar Rapids community into a single location.  The Witwer Building located on the corner of 2nd Ave and 3rd St. SE (303 or 305 2nd Ave SE, Cedar Rapids, IA 52405 depending on available public documents) is currently under contract to purchase and will be the location of the Foundation 2 Crisis Services Headquarters.

The project entails a partial remodel to the existing space that will provide a permanent location to support our teams who provide crisis and supportive services to Iowans. We are soliciting RFQs for multiple phases of the project including schematic design, design development, construction documents, cost estimations, and construction administration on the new Foundation 2 Crisis Services Headquarters.  I have attached our Request for Qualifications for a design/architect as well as floor plans for the 2nd and 3rd floors of the building.

The successful firm must have demonstrated experience working with historical buildings and will provide a response that articulates options and oversight of space needs and helps the Foundation 2 Crisis Services leadership team and Board of Directors determine the best path forward.  To be considered for this work, you must follow the guidelines for proposal format and submission and submit all items electronically to Chief Executive Officer, Emily Blomme ( ) by 4 pm on Monday, June 27, 2022.

Our project is moving rapidly so I apologize for the short turnaround!  We will also publicly post these documents on our website today!

Feel free to reach out to me with questions you have as you decide if this is the right project for your company!   You can learn more about our organization and the important services we provide the community at

Thank you for your consideration!
