University of Central Florida Tenant Improvements

C&S is providing the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection design as part of a design-build team for multiple tenant improvements and a restroom renovation at the University of Central Florida.

The first project includes mechanical, electrical, and fire protection design services for the JT Washington Card Reader facility. The 2,000-square-foot existing layout was not conducive to service the growing needs of student identification processes for the University. This project provided renovations to the existing space to add two main offices, a conference room, and modified the existing queue/photography area to better suit the operator’s needs. Other significant efforts included coordination and electrical design modifications to provide data and power services to perform the daily operations in a seamless manner.

C&S will also provide engineering services for the complete renovation of an existing restroom in the JT Washington facility. This project will remove a dead end hallway and use this space to expand the restrooms, providing adequate space for ADA compliance. The main entrance, plumbing chase wall, and sanitary drainage piping will need to be rotated 90-degrees from their current locations to accommodate the renovations. New fixtures, lighting, and piping will be installed, along with new entrances that will allow for a handicap-accessible pathway.

C&S will also provide mechanical, electrical and fire protection engineering for the tenant build-out of the UCF Partnership I second floor. As-built drawings of the existing spaces will be created, and used to develop demolition drawings. New work will include modifications to the existing HVAC system, electrical, paging, and fire protection to accommodate the proposed floor plan.

Also included in this contract are mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection upgrades at the UCF Rosen College of Hospitality Management, a satellite campus. C&S will provide engineering efforts to generate demolition drawings for the removal of two companion restrooms and associated vestibules, which will then allow space for a new elevator and elevator machine room. The new design efforts will provide cooling for the elevator machine room, power for all equipment, lighting, modifications to the fire protection system, and fire alarm system. When this project is complete, the second floor will be accessible to people with disabilities.
