Doral animal shelter specialty

The project covered an extensive renovation of an existing building to convert into a new climate controlled “state of the art” facility for adoption and protection of pets. The existing building is a one-story structure with precast concrete panels in the facade, a combination of precast joists and steel joists at roof and deep foundations. As-built drawings were partially available. Several site visits were required during the design of the building to determine existing structural framing and conditions. The remodeling consisted of reinforcing the existing structure such as slabs, columns, walls and footings for the new loads, a mezzanine addition, new exterior corridors, new windows, new canopy. Construction Administration services were also provided consisting of review and approval of shop drawings, respond to RFI’s, assist to meetings, site visits and field conditions assessment and solutions
