Project Detail

It is a 5-story classroom and research building located in Coral Gables.  The ground floor is primarily BOH functions with some imaging suites and seminar rooms.  The second floor has a large roof top garden, labs and collaborative spaces.  Open research labs on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors will be designed to meet vibrational velocity limits for bench microscopes.

The structural system is precast joists/soffit beams and concrete shear walls with precast exterior walls.  We anticipate a deep foundation system will be required.

Total gross area of the new construction is approximately 85,000-sf.
