1. Would you be able to share pictures or plans of the second floor space?

We created a video of the space for you to see.

 2.  Has the submittal due date been changed in light of recent events?

The submittal date has not changed.

3. Does item B under Project Overview on the first page of RFP indicate the STL is requesting consultant services to masterplan the entire facility, or do the services requested involve only the 2nd floor areas described in the 3rd paragraph above.

We are only looking for the 2nd floor. Sorry for any misinformation in the RFP.

4. Also from paragraphs 3 and 4 of Project Overview:  Is the intent that the 2nd floor Office and Family Room functions to be included within a reconfigured 2nd floor and balcony area?  Or possibly relocated to elsewhere within the facility?

The office and family room are to remain where they are and are not included in the reconfiguration.
