    RFQ 14-25 Campus Maintenance Facility Modifications



    RFQ 14-25

    The University of North Florida Board of Trustees, a public body corporate, announces that construction services are required for the Campus Maintenance Facility located at 1 UNF Drive, Jacksonville, FL 32224.

    This solicitation will involve a two-step process to first qualify construction firms and then invite those qualified firms to submit bids for this project. The construction project will convert an existing warehouse building of approximately 67,224 GSF into new support shop, storeroom, maintenance and administrative spaces. The design will include specifications for site improvements, concrete, interior demolition, framing and drywall, flooring, HVAC, electrical, technology and plumbing work. This conversion will enable the relocation of the UNF Physical Facilities support shops from their present location in the campus core to a larger space with adequate storage and functional space to support the University’s mission.

    Construction is expected to commence in the summer of 2014. The budget for this project is approximately $2,000,000 and is intended to cover the base bid plus as many alternates as can be purchased while staying within the budget. All, some or none of the alternates may be awarded. The design (by TTV Architects) is in progress, so no plans or specifications will be made available during the pre-qualification process. Contractors successfully completing the pre-qualification process will proceed to the bidding phase. Bid documentation will be made available during second step of the process.

    The proposed schedule for this project is:
