Fairchild tropical gardensBiscayne Engineering Company provided Civil Engineering services on a project at Fairchild Tropical Gardens in the City of Coral Gables, Florida for the demolition of the existing orchid room, screen house, maintenance building, Rainforest Café and office building and accommodate the addition of a new shade house, café, banquet hall and office pavilion.

Our services consisted of the production of the demolition plans for the overall improvements, the design of the water, sewer, and storm water management system for the site, and assistance with the permitting through the City of Coral Gables, Miami-Dade County Water and Sewer Department, and the Miami-Dade County Department of Environmental Resources Management. 

The project team was seeking LEED certification for the new buildings and Biscayne Engineering coordinated accordingly to provide the design accommodations and documentation needed to meet the team’s goals.
