This project involved the removal and replacement of the complete steam and condensate piping system at the Food Science Building on the UF Campus.  This work included exterior excavation, demolition and replacement of all interior and exterior piping and accessories, the installation of a new manhole, and replacement of all improvements disturbed during excavations (curbs, asphalt, landscaping, etc.).  Coordination requirements included a pedestrian plan for rerouted student foot traffic, alternate work hours for interior construction, and interior work area containment.  Also, a long stretch of the installed system ran down the side of an entrance drive that had to remain open for the duration of the project.  Close communication and coordination were the key to this project’s success.
