Broward County Convention Center Expansion
This project consisted of a 3-level, 150,000-SF expansion to the existing 450,000-SF Broward County Convention Center, located inside Port Everglades, in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Langan provided subsurface investigations, geotechnical engineering, and construction-phase foundation and site preparation inspections. Because of its location within a filled-in former coastal marsh/swamp, this project presented complex geotechnical challenges. Langan recommended high-capacity augercast piles for support of the building superstructure, and preloading/surcharging to allow the use of a grade supported floor slab, for an efficient and economical foundation system.
