Our team has a multitude of experience in the planning and design of campus designs for institutional and educational facilities of all kinds. These types of facilities have diverse and specific needs that often change over time. We strive to create spaces that will be reliable yet dynamic and withstand the test of time both in safety and in style.
CMA has designed and assisted in the construction management of dozens of healthcare facilities including brand new hospitals, hospital additions, emergency rooms, medical office buildings, long-term acute care hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, helipad designs and ADA accessible routes. Our team understands the unique challenges that are encountered in the development of healthcare facilities. We are familiar with Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) requirements and understand the specific needs of healthcare site design such as special access requirements, ADA accessibility, water system redundancy, special floodplain considerations, central energy plant access, utility corridors as well as special lift station designs and the use of macerators to handle conditions only present in hospitals.
CMA understands what is required of us when it comes to providing services to K-12 and higher education campuses. Our team has worked on millions of dollars’ worth of improvements to infrastructure and public spaces for educational facilities. We make certain that as individual facilities are developed that they make sense with campus master plans and that these facilities are designed with the capacity to accommodate future growth and capital improvements in order to minimize or eliminate rework of installed infrastructure. Throughout the many master planning projects, parking lot modifications, utility and roadway upgrades, athletic field improvements, student housing, and open space projects we have completed, we have come to understand that the most critical component for success is to work within the academic calendar, providing design and permitting when the campus is heavily populated, and construction services when students are away on break. Our professional staff stay current with the newest trends and design concerns for higher education and K-12 in Florida.
