Cristobal Betancourt, RLA, Patrick Kaimrajh, P.E., Stefan Bortak, CID, Whitney Tidd and Jose Acosta, P.E. recently attended the grand opening of the FIU Biscayne Bay Campus Student Housing facility. CMA served as a subconsultant to PGAL for the design, permitting and construction administration of the new 595-bed student dormitory. Our responsibilities included providing all site services for the project such as survey, geotechnical, civil and landscape services. The site program includes a resort style swimming pool with hammocks, barbecue areas, outdoor seating, and cabana, bicycle parking facilities, pedestrian pathways, site seating and a 300-space parking facility. CMA applied its experience with Low Impact Development (LID) techniques to provide site design in the highly constrained site. The project was designed to a LEED silver standard.
