Florida International University's cantilevered design

June 01, 2009 |

Suffolk Construction's Miami-Dade business unit is serving as GC for the $14 million School of International and Public Affairs building at the University Park Campus of Florida International University. Designed by Arquitectonica, Miami, the five-story, 58,408-sf building will have a café and three auditoriums on the ground level; the largest auditorium will have a 40-foot cantilever above a Japanese garden. The building's upper floors will house classroom space and faculty offices. Sustainable features including waterless urinals and a green roof, should help the building earn LEED Silver. A fall 2010 completion date is expected.
