Kaufman Lynn Construction continues business with Florida Atlantic University to build a new 1,000 car expandable parking garage with retail space. This will be the sixth major construction contract between Kaufman Lynn and FAU.
Florida Atlantic University (FAU) selected Kaufman Lynn Construction as the construction manager for the site development and construction of a 1,000 car parking garage to be located on the university’s Boca Raton campus just west of the new football stadium. The garage will be designed to accommodate future expansion as well as ground floor retail.
“We are excited to partner with FAU once again and are committed to build a garage that will serve the needs of the university for many years to come,” says Michael Kaufman, president and CEO of Kaufman Lynn Construction.
Since 1989, Kaufman Lynn Construction has built exceptionally high-quality buildings and long lasting client relationships. Their intense commitment to clients’ construction needs is the reason why more than 80% of Kaufman Lynn customers represent renewed or repeat business deals. Kaufman Lynn’s previous projects with FAU include the construction of the Marleen and Harold Forkas Alumni Center (a 13,000 square foot Alumni Center with office space, classrooms, meeting room and conference area), the Recreation & Fitness Center (a 60,000 square foot facility with locker rooms, gym/athletic courts, athletic training room, yoga/fitness room, a public common area, and a pool area with a full deck and landscaping) and the Wimberly Library Expansion (a five story cast-in-place concrete/masonry library addition featuring a café and study rooms).
By contracting with Kaufman Lynn, FAU has gained not only useful facilities, but award-winning buildings as well. The Recreation & Fitness Center was the 2010 Building of America Gold Medal Award Winner, and winner of the Construction Association of South Florida (CASF) 2009 Craftsmanship Award.
The budget for FAU’s new 1,000 car garage is $10.5 million. Construction for the garage is expected to start in July 2012 with a completion date of April 2013. Future expansion of the garage will be pending.
