General contractor proposals 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. Our intent is to work with a General Contractor who will assist our agency with the bidding and review process for the selection of an architecture and design firm to work alongside the General Contractor and manage the review and oversight of the subcontractors selected to complete the work for the remodel. In lieu, thereof, we would consider a design/build proposal, as well.

Our Request for Qualifications for a General Contractor, as well as floor plans for the 2nd and 3rd floors of the building, are linked below. Proposals must be submitted electronically (via email) no later than 4 PM on June 17, 2022, to Emily Blomme ( ). Five (5) printed and bound copies shall be submitted to 1714 Johnson Ave NW Cedar Rapids, Iowa 52405 via mail or messenger.

Please feel free to contact Emily Blomme ( with any questions 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!
