RFQ Maker Space Master Plan

San Mateo County Libraries is seeking a Contractor to assist in developing a Master Plan for our future maker spaces. Our vision for the maker spaces are to encourage creative failure and teach timeless skills - problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, curiosity - through STEAM activities, and to build an inclusive community of makers who set the direction for library maker spaces going forward. We want to work with a qualified Contractor to help us determine an effective Master Plan to implement the key essentials needed for innovative maker spaces in our library locations.

The subsequent Master Plan should provide a clear vision to guide future maker spaces and a survey of neighboring organizations to determine if there are gaps in meeting maker space needs, recommendations detailing the equipment types, spacing zone needs (with recommended square footage for each zone), storage solutions, and services for optimal maker spaces.

The final Maker Space Master Plan should be completed by April 2017.
