For safety reasons, the tour has been strictly limited to a maximum five (5) attendees per tour guide. This is a live construction site, and the tour parameters will depend on the construction activity occurring during said tour date. The Design-Build contractor, Bouygues Civil Works Florida’s Safety Protocol mandates there be one escort per every five guests. It is imperative that you remain close to your escort at all times, and follow their directives, especially as they relate to where you can step and stand and where you cannot.
