Osceola County wants to hire a construction manager at risk to work closely with the architect and engineer on the $9 million expansion and renovation project at Austin-Tindall Regional Park.
The county posted a request for proposals (RFP) for the construction management firm Wednesday night, just hours after posting the RFP for the design firm.
The project calls for improvements to the park's eight existing fields - bringing all to FIFA standards - as well as the addition of a new championship field and stadium with seating for up to 2,000 spectators. Austin-Tindall is located at 4100 Boggy Creek Rd., in Kissimmee.
The master plan also calls for a new concession stand, rest rooms, pavilions and additional parking on the east side of the park. County officials are hoping to start construction in the summer with completion scheduled for December 2016.
Don Gaskins is the procurement officer, and the county will hold a mandatory pre-bid conference on Dec. 11. Proposals are due Jan. 5 at 2 p.m.
