University of Florida Continuing Minor Projects Annual Contract for General Contractors
Since 2009, Foresight has held a contract with the University of Florida to provide the university with construction services for campus-wide projects. The contract is intended to simplify and expedite the execution of general construction projects under $200,000. Projects are located throughout UF’s main campus in Gainesville, Florida, and at IFAS facilities throughout the state.
Typical projects assigned under this contract include new construction, renovation, remodeling, reroofing and other building maintenance, equipment installation, pre-engineered metal buildings, greenhouses, pole barns, asbestos abatement and fire code corrections. Areas requiring renovation or remodeling may include animal research or holding areas, historic buildings, research laboratories, classrooms, library and media centers, office and related functions, outpatient clinics, reception and waiting areas, lobbies and corridors, atriums, courtyards and plazas, modular and pre-engineered buildings, apartments, dormitories, and associated roadways, sitework and sidewalks.
Most projects completed under this contract are performed under extremely tight time frames within occupied spaces, and many of the projects have been completed in high-profile areas of the busy campus. The current contract period is effective through August 2015.
