Florida Atlantic University Seatech Research Lab / Multi-story research facility conversion / 50,000 GSF – $5.6M
This project entailed complete conversion of an existing retail facility into a specialized research laboratory for FAU’s Ocean Engineering program. The complex includes oceanfront research labs, teaching labs, classrooms, faculty offices, and tele-conferencing facilities. The project included direct continuous-flow seawater lines with intake filters (core-drilled from facility under roadway extending 1/4 mile into Atlantic) for marine science studies, seawater tanks including a 50-foot wave tank and docking facilities for AUVs and research vessels. The scope included exterior envelope remediation, window replacement, waterproofing, and re-roofing.
