Florida International University Public Safety & Emergency Management Facility / New EOC renovation and addition on occupied campus/ 12,823 GSF
The scope of this project included infill existing parking space on the second floor of an active university parking garage to provide an expanded large emergency operations center including food storage and service operations, equipment storage, offices, conference rooms, meeting break rooms, telecom room and redundant power.
The expansion of facilities for Public Safety will allow the police department to better address growing campus security needs. The expansion of facilities for Emergency Management will allow the department to properly function prior to and during a major storm event and to maintain function for days following the event at a time when travel in the area is not possible and outside support is not able to assist.
Work includes new locker room, showers, laundry service space, and offices that will be needed during emergency events when occupied on a continuous basis, not only by Public Safety and Emergency Management personnel but also FIU essential personnel from Facilities, Information Technology, External Relations, FIU Health, Environmental Health & Safety, Parking and Transportation, Finance and Administration, and Business Services when activated.
