The following funding sources are utilized for campus projects:
Architectural and Engineering Services will provide services to the customer for their furniture projects dealing with space studies renovations, egress clearance requirements, ADA access compliance, power/data/phone outlet location coordination, etc.
Building Code Requirements: All projects on campus will be designed and constructed in compliance with all applicable codes and in accordance with the Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) on the University of West Florida campus. Most projects require permits and inspection from the Escambia County Building Code Official (BCO) amd the Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). Associated permitting fees from the BCO and State Fire Marshal are part of the project budget. Architectural and Engineering Services coordinates this process for all projects, regardless of fund origin.
Construction Change Orders: Change Orders are the means by which a project’s scope, budget or schedule is changed. Often, a project’s scope is revised after the initial scope meeting. Such revisions may either increase or decrease the cost of the project depending on that scope change. The project manager uses change orders to track changes in the cost. It is not uncommon during a renovation project for costs to increase due to what is considered “unforeseen” or “hidden” conditions. Change orders are utilized for contracts and purchase orders.
Building Access: Off-hour building access for contractors or vendors must be obtained through the UWF Police Department and must have the project manager’s approval.
Continuing Term Consultants and Contractor Agreements:
