Facility Updates: Part 1

UF OPWD staff is slowly trickling in as our back-to-work plan is coming into effect. It’s been wonderful to see everyone’s faces again (6ft apart, of course), and it has been a nice surprise to view some facility updates that have been in the works while we were operating remotely.

After 42 years, the TREEO Center namesake is now visible in big silver letters above our entrance doors!

A few of the other renovations include updated furniture, flooring, signage and even aesthetic additions like fountains! Keep reading to see and learn more about our refreshed office space.


Two fountains found their way into our TREEO pond. Not only do they enhance the pizzazz of our facility, but they also help add dissolved oxygen to the water, which promotes healthy root growth.

Fresh Floors!

New, slip-resistant (polyurea floor coating and polyaspartic clear topcoat) outdoor flooring has replaced the concrete at the entrance of our building, as well as the hallways throughout.

While plexiglass lives at the front-desk for class registration and check-in, mandatory face covering signs are hung on every door throughout the facility.

Updated and modern furniture has replaced the old, retro style decor that used to occupy the front atrium.


Not pictured and currently in progress is the renovation of our conference room. Look for part 2 of facility updates later this year to view the finished look!
