onePULSE Foundation has issued a request for proposals (RFP) seeking an owner’s representative to manage finalising design and construction of the $35 million National Pulse Memorial and Museum.
The Pulse Memorial and Museum will honour the 49 people who were killed in the PULSE tragedy of June 12, 2016. It will also support the families, survivors and first responders involved.
The owner’s representative will manage the project and all aspects of the paperwork, budgets, contracts and regular reporting, with guidance from the onePULSE Foundation.
onePULSE will accept proposals from both project management firms and individuals. However, it notes that the selectee must have a current office in Orlando.
Honouring the 49 people killed in PULSE tragedy
Proposals must be received by 4pm on January 31, 2020. More details on how to submit a proposal are available in the RFP.
Shortlisted applicants will be notified in February after onePULSE reviews and evaluates submissions. Interviews will follow, with onePULSE hoping to choose a firm by the end of February.
onePULSE Foundation plans to build the National Pulse Memorial on the site of the Pulse nightclub. The museum and education centre will be located at 438 West Kaley Street.
In November, onePULSE Foundation announced that the design team for the National Pulse Memorial & Museum will be led by Coldefy & Associés.

She added that it will also educate guests “on the profound impact the tragedy had on Orlando, the US and the world”.
