University of Florida Landscape Master Plan

Date: 8/21/2017 - 9/28/2017

Type: RFPs / RFQs

LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): Florida


The University of Florida Board of Trustees announces that professional services in the disciplines of landscape master planning are required for the project described below.

The University of Florida recently completed a Strategic Development Plan (SDP) and is finalizing Campus Design Guidelines (CDG). The SDP describes a broad framework for the long-term development of campus and its environs with an emphasis on community collaboration. Recommendations to develop five important civic squares, a north-south “main street” along Newell Drive, and an east-west corridor along Stadium Road are key to the SDP’s framework for the physical campus. The Campus Master Plan for 2015-2025 (CMP) provides further site assessment, policy, and design guidance, but will require some amendment to make it consistent with the SDP. The Campus Design Guidelines provide a unifying vision for the physical assets of campus including architecture, landscapes, natural areas, parking, and circulation that are consistent with and support the SDP framework. The proposed Landscape Master Plan (LMP) would delve further into developing the details supporting this vision in terms of civic spaces, streetscapes, landscape concepts, signage, gateways, and plant and material pallets that brand the university and mark its preeminent place in the community and in higher education. This campus-wide landscape vision will build upon concepts developed in the SDP and CDG, and operationalize these concepts to landscape policies, projects, and priorities.

Responses due September 28, 2017, 3:00 p.m. local time.
