GHAZVINI CENTER FOR HEALTH CARE EDUCATION

Project Location:  

Tallahassee, Florida

Construction Completed: 

2011

Project Elements: 

George & Associates provided civil engineering site design for the Tallahassee Community College Ghazvini Health Education Center on a 13.28 acre parcel. The Ghazvini Health Education Center is a 3-story building with approximately 85,000 s.f. of floor space. The facility is the location of the nursing program for TCC and contains teaching labs, classrooms, an auditorium, and faculty office space as well as a clinic.  The site design included analysis of existing and proposed drainage, grading of the site to insure proper drainage, utility connection design for water and sewer, and hydraulic analysis of on-site and off-site drainage conveyance. The site was challenging since it has approximately 60 feet of vertical fall from corner to corner. Permitting was through the City of Tallahassee and included natural features, site plan permitting, and environmental management permitting.
