BNI landed another project at FIU, this one with architect PGAL. FIU received funding for a $5 million renovation and expansion of their Emergency Operations Center (EOC).
The project is located on the 2nd floor of Parking Garage No. 5. Our primary scope of work is related to leveling the current, sloped garage floor.
Part of the 2nd floor was designed for these increased loads, so our only work in that area will be designing the concrete slab on steel deck on cold-formed steel framing. The other part of the 2nd floor was not designed for these increased loads, so our work in that area will also include evaluating and possibly strengthening the double tees, L- and T-beams, corbels and columns. Our work may also include hardening parts of the existing enclosure.
