    UCF Spectrum Stadium Rust Remediation


     made by the University of Central Florida Board of Trustees

    PROJECT NAME, NUMBER & LOCATION: Spectrum Stadium Rust Remediation, University of Central Florida, Main Campus. The scope of this project is for the remediation of all steel on the Spectrum Stadium, including:

    ·         Evaluation by the prime contractor of the most logistically and economically efficient manner to remediate the Stadium, in accordance with the Project Documents. The Stadium is only available January 3 to August 1 of each calendar year.  Contractor shall submit a proposed remediation schedule as part of its bid for the work;

    ·         Installation of temporary environmental protection barriers to isolate people and objects from the work area; this includes temporary barriers when bleachers are removed;

    ·         Removal and re-installation of all appurtenances (conduits, signage, railings, bleachers, etc.) as needed to properly and fully remediate all steel surfaces. 

    ·         Sandblasting the existing steel to bare metal, as described in the Project Documents; coordination of the design of structural repairs with Owner’s structural engineer; Contractor will be responsible for the construction of structural repairs;

    ·         Installation of an Inorganic Zinc coating over bare metal (including structural repairs), as described in the project documents, see Project Documents for full scope and requirements.  ONLY those products listed in the Project Documents will be considered – no alternates;

    ·         Supervision of the work and documentation of remediation (reports, photographs, etc.) in accordance with project requirements;

    It is the intent of this advertisement to award a single prime contract to the coating installer for all of the work. The prime contractor may sub-contract for portions of this work if necessary, but is responsible for delivering a turn-key product to the University.  Construction Managers who simply oversee other contractors doing the work will not be considered for this contract – the prime contractor must self-perform the blasting and coating work.
