    Colbourn Hall Renovation


    The University of Central Florida, on behalf of its Board of Trustees, announces that services in the disciplines of architecture and construction management will be required for the project listed below:

    Project No. UCF-569 Colbourn Hall Renovation

    Project and Location: Colbourn Hall Building, University of Central Florida, Main Campus, Orlando, Florida.

    The project consists of the renovation of the existing Colbourn Hall, which is thirty-nine years old, five stories, and 84,000 gross square feet. The renovation will include modifications to the building envelope, structural systems, exterior corridors, and HVAC systems to meet current occupancy and life safety codes. The total project cost will be approximately $4,000,000 - $7,000,000.

    There will be two separate contracts for this project, one for the Architect and one for the Construction Manager (CM).


    It is the University’s intention to have architects and construction managers submit separate proposals. Proposal reviews, interviews, and final selections will be conducted for each discipline.

    The selected architect and construction manager will provide program verification, design, construction documents, and administration for the project. Blanket professional liability insurance for the Architect will be required for this project in the amount of $1,000,000 and will be provided as a part of Basic Services.

    The selection committee members have elected not to meet with proposed firms prior to the shortlist meeting. Please do not contact the selection committee.
