Participating vendors and members of the public may have seen a rendering on Florida Poly’s social media sites recently with the label “Applied Research Center.” This rendering was created before the opening of this RFQ as a general, artistic concept to help communicate the University’s vision for the Applied Research Center to a wide range of audiences (e.g., its placement on campus in proximity to the IST Building, intended usage, possible features, etc.). It is meant to be an inspirational concept and not an official or suggested rendering of the ultimate structure. The final design for the building will be created by the firm selected under this solicitation process.
