SPECIALIZED STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING COMPANY FOR Structural Components: EASTERN ENGINEERING GROUP
As part of the Center for Innovative Medicine project, the Eastern Engineering Group played a crucial role in designing and providing documentation for the glass railing system. We were responsible for creating the shop drawings and calculations necessary for obtaining permits. Our team created a meticulously crafted design featuring a Glass Railing with an Aluminum Base Shoe. We ensured that the project complied with all relevant codes and regulations, including the latest edition of the Florida Building Code.
Did you know that Gresham Smith, the architectural mastermind behind the Center for Innovative Medicine, faced a unique challenge with the project’s site? The property, acquired before their involvement, presented a tight space for Innovative Cancer Institute’s needs. One of the team’s ingenious solutions to address the site’s limitations was the innovative integration of parking on the second, third, and fourth floors. This strategic decision not only met the City of South Miami’s parking requirements but also transformed the access ramp into a distinctive architectural feature.
