University of Miami – Life Science & Technology Park

The research and development park provides office and laboratory space for companies to collaborate with UM researchers, making it easier to turn scientific discoveries into commercial products. The extensive 1.4-million-SF research and development complex includes numerous mid-rise buildings and associated multi-level parking structures. Langan prepared paving, grading and drainage plans to expand the surface parking field by 131 parking stalls. The preparation of the construction documents included drainage calculations for five drainage wells, catch basins and conveyance piping. Langan obtained a “Drainage Connection Permit” from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) which was required because the project abuts NW 7 Avenue, an FDOT operated roadway.
