The University of Central Florida is seeking up to 10,000 square feet of warehouse space near its main campus to store Housing and Residence Life assets.
UCF's Housing Department warehouse operation handles the receiving, delivering and storage of all housing documents and assets, including furniture for student and staff housing, appliances, office furniture, air conditioning units, linens, office records and more.
The department's goal is to keep all of those materials in one location, so UCF wants to lease between 8,000 and 10,000 square feet of warehouse space, with a corresponding 1,000 to 3,000 square feet of office space, according to an Invitation to Bid published within the past week.
The location must be within a five-mile radius of UCF's main campus address (4000 Central Florida Blvd.), with secured 24-hour access, a minimum of two loading bays, 10 parking spaces, climate controlled, and able to handle vertical rack height of 20 feet.
The lease would be scheduled to start on June 1 for an initial five-year period, with renewal options for two additional one-year periods, and include maintenance of the building, parking area and grounds.
Bids are due March 30 at 3 p.m. via UCF's Bonfire Web Portal, and will be opened that day at the Procurement Services Department.
