New Children’s Courthouse
US General Services Administration
EAC is providing the civil engineering design services required for the New Children’s Courthouse. The County has a need for a new facility and this fourteen story, 378,000 SF, “signature building” will be an opportunity to create a visually appealing, environmentally sound, safe and secure place to do business within the framework of downtown Miami. The design will closely adhere to design guidelines and requirements for a LEED certified building. The pipe materials used for utility systems and stormwater management will follow applicable LEED recommendations. EAC designed a system for direct drainage of stormwater from green areas to an underground cistern to be used for irrigation.
The civil engineering services include site and geometry layout plans, demolition design and plans, paving and grading, drainage and stormwater, utilities, utility relocation of water and gas, and a traffic/parking impact study. The project also requires coordination with permitting/jurisdictional agencies like: MWASD, City of Miami Public Works and Fire Department, DERM, Miami-Dade County Health Department and FDEP. EAC will also be providing Construction Administration Services.
