NEW CONSTRUCTION AND REHABILITATION

We participate in all construction and rehabilitation projects associated with USF St. Petersburg during each phase of building to include: Conceptual Planning, Official Design, Construction, and Certification/Commissioning.  During the process of constructions, we communicate all known hazards in an effort to ensure safety during site improvements.

All events on campus must receive approval to ensure that intent, setup and operation are conducted safely and in accordance with university, state and federal guidelines.  Safety & Compliance works collectively with student, staff and outside event planners prior to, during, and after an event.
