Building Rehabilitation of I4 Project Headquarters Begins
DACG, Inc.’s first project as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise will be the rehabilitation of the I-4 expansion headquarters building, according to DACG, Inc. The headquarters building will house project teams from several contracting firms, including: SKANSKA USA, LANE Construction Corp., and Granite Construction Co.
DACG, Inc. has received several certifications in the past few months that provide eligibility to perform work on state and federal building projects as a woman and minority-owned business. DACG’s President, Heather McCandless, received notice Thursday (Aug. 14) of the construction contracting firm’s certification as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE). DACG’s certifications now include: M/WBE, LDB and DBE which they obtained through a Unified Certification Program (UCP).
“With this certification we can now participate in more projects and offer additional partnerships with contractors that will improve diversity and employment levels locally and across the State of Florida,” said Heather McCandless, President of DACG.
The building rehabilitation project along the I-4 corridor is a 43,000 sq ft existing building that will serve as the hub for construction activities during the project set for construction in early 2015 and completion in early 2021.
According to FDOT, the $2.3 billion I-4 expansion project will add tolled Express Lanes in the current median for 21 miles between Kirkman Road and State Road 434. The project improvements include reconstruction of 15 major interchanges, replacement of more than 75 bridges and rebuilding the general use lanes along entire corridor.
