Specialty Engineering – Miami Dade Animal Shelter Sculptures

The Miami-Dade County Animal Shelter is not just a haven for animals in need; it’s a testament to the profound bond between cats, dogs, and humans. The building’s design is a masterpiece, with charming art installations that celebrate this unique connection, serving as a visual reminder of the love and compassion that drives the shelter’s mission. Situated in the heart of Miami-Dade County, Florida, this reputable organization stands as a beacon of hope for abandoned, lost, and surrendered animals. With a dedicated team of compassionate staff and volunteers, their tireless efforts ensure the well-being and welfare of every animal that seeks refuge within their walls, ultimately working towards the goal of finding them loving forever homes.

Our Client: LIVS Associates

Our approach to the scope of work for this project involved shop drawing design and calculations for the animal sculptures placed over the roof. In executing the structural design, we addressed several crucial elements, including the redesign of support for the chandelier/sculpture in the lobby, as well as establishing connections for artwork in compliance with the new requirements specified by the architect. Our drawings not only delineated the essential connections and support structures for the sculptures but also underscored our commitment to adhering to the most up-to-date edition of the Florida Building Code. This dedication ensured the project’s structural integrity and full compliance with all requisite regulations.
