FDOH Miami-Dade Center of Excellence Public Health & Safety Headquarters Complex, Miami, Florida
“I have had the pleasure of working with Biltmore Construction since 2007. Since that time, they have assisted us with multiple projects, the largest of which totaled over 289,244 GSF – The Miami-Dade Center of Excellence Public Health & Safety Headquarters Complex comprised of four, multi-story facilities within one central campus constructed in multiple, concurrent phases to maintain operations of the State Lab Building and Original Administration Building. I have found Biltmore Construction’s personnel to be highly skilled and professional, timely and budget conscious. Biltmore Construction provides excellent quality of work and is an excellent partner on any construction project!”

In addition to monitoring animal diseases, the lab also conducts thousands of test each year for public health threats, such as anthrax, Lyme disease, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
The Phase 2 facility includes two new structures housing a Necropsy Laboratory and Incineration Facility plus a Shipping & Receiving Facility. The Necropsy Lab is 20′ high, floor to ceiling, to accommodate handling of large animal carcasses and includes a high performance monorail system with motorized & manual hoists able to accommodate loads to 6,000 pounds.
