Project Description

Florida International Parking Garage 6

Miller Legg provided the engineering design services for Florida International University’s (FIU) 2,000-space 35,000 SF mixed-use Parking Garage No. 6 (PG6) on the Modesto Maidique campus in Miami. The design for this project included water, sewer, paving, grading, drainage, traffic and transportation design for this facility. Also the planning for a future express bus rapid transit hub is integrated into the site’s design. Off-site improvements include the widening of the campus loop road, NW 10th Street and the design of a two lane roundabout that will serve as the primary entrance to the campus. Intersection improvements to SW 8th Street and SW 112th Avenue include coordination and permitting with FDOT for signalization and roadway improvements. The full scope of services includes: survey, subsurface utility engineering, design, permitting, construction observation and closeout for new and realigned spine roads with one additional roundabout (including a utility corridor of telecommunication duct banks, electrical duct banks, chilled water lines), sanitary sewer gravity mains, sanitary sewer force mains, drainage system, water mains, gas mains, and irrigation mains. Miller Legg was a subconsultant to PGAL.

This project was awarded the International Parking Institute’s Award of Excellence in Category II (Best Design of a Parking Facility with Fewer than 800 Spaces) in March 2016.
