Florida Blue has seven has seven office buildings and a conference center at its Deerwood Park campus.

Florida Blue continues to renovate the office buildings at its Deerwood Park campus in an investment that could top $45 million, although COVID-19 is delaying work on the remaining two structures.

WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reports the city is reviewing a permit application for a $5.3 million renovation of Building 800 at the insurer’s 100-acre property at 4800 Deerwood Campus Parkway.

Those plans call for interior renovations of the six-story building, including mechanical, electrical and plumbing work; drywall, paint, carpet and flooring; and casework and restroom repairs.

The city issued a permit July 4 for the interior demolition at a cost of $300,000. Danis Builders LLC is the contractor.

“The demolition on the interior of Building 800 at the Deerwood campus is part of our ongoing renovations of our 20-year-old buildings,” said Toni Woods, Florida Blue senior media relations consultant, although project completion is delayed.

Woods said there typically are about 6,000 employees at the Deerwood campus. Most are working remotely during the coronavirus pandemic.
