Seminole State College of Florida is looking to award two contracts as it moves forward with the massive 1.4 million-square-foot Altamonte Springs Campus expansion.
The College began advertising on its website this week a request for qualifications (RFQs) for owner's representative(s) and another for an architectural consultant for the project.
For the owner's representative(s), there is a mandatory pre-submittal conference at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 20.
For the architectural consultant, there is a mandatory meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 19, at 3:30 p.m.
Both qualifications are due Dec. 11. The College is expected to rank and make a decision Jan. 27.
The project, which will be built in phases, will be funded through public-private partnerships.
The RFQs are another step in the massive expansion of the Altamonte Springs Campus. A master plan, approved by the College's Board of Trustees in December, calls for building nine buildings as high as 15 stories.
In August, the Board designated the project a public-private partnership in response to a recent law.
The Altamonte Springs Campus, located at the corner of Maitland Boulevard and S.R. 434, opened at capacity in 2008. It expanded to 43 acres in 2012 when the College completed the purchase of three adjacent car dealership buildings.
Dr. Joe Sarnovsky, executive vice president at Seminole State, said the plan is to develop all 43 acres at the campus, creating “a unique kind of co-op” where the partners would serve on an advisory board.
The expansion, to be built in phases as partners are approved, would create more than 1.4 million square feet of space, more than all of Seminole State’s current campuses combined.
You can view the RFQs on Seminole State's website.
