Florida State University Dick Howser Stadium
Lighting Improvements - The Florida State University This project was accomplished over a 48-day period including bidding, buyout, equipment procurement, and construction. As the existing athletic field could not be used for demolition of the existing concrete lighting system, all construction was performed with the use of cranes and hoisting equipment located outside of the stadium field playing surface. The project design budget was originally established at $450,000. Prior to selecting Baycrest as the Construction Manager, the estimated cost was in excess of $500,000. Through careful prequalification of select subcontractors, and an innovative staging, access, hoisting, and demolition plan, we were able to deliver the complete project for $47,000 less than the original budget. The scope of the work included preconstruction and construction services to remove the existing stadium lighting and replacement with a new Musco Lite-Structure system.
