Project Description

Florida Gulf Coast University

Project Description:

The new Florida Gulf Coast University Campus is located in Fort Myers, Florida for THE BOARD OF REGENTS & STATE UNIVERSITY SYSTEM. It is the 10th new campus to join the State University System. The project, although new, provided its own unique challenges. The new campus, totaling 250,000 s.f., consisted of seven (7) new buildings, hard scape, parking and main entrance road. The scope of work included, (commencing at 6 o’clock on the site photo and moving clockwise) the Library / Administration Building, Academic Building #2, Academic Building #1, Student Services Building #2, Student Services #1, the Wellness Center and (off the picture to the south) the Central Energy Plant.

The Central Energy Plant is designed to expand as the campus expands. It is a chilled water system utilizing ice storage as an energy savings for cooling the campus.
