CLIENT: A logistics real estate firm
LOCATION: Miami-Dade County, Florida
The client for this project, a warehouse facility located in an area subject to hurricanes, flooding, tornadoes and associated disruption to utilities, engaged Marx|Okubo to conduct a preliminary site vulnerability assessment, which identified and quantified potential physical hazards and how they could affect the subject property. This assessment will allow the client to make an educated decision on whether to pursue the project and to ensure that hazards are discussed with the design team and vulnerabilities will be addressed. Identifying risks prior to development streamlines design efficiencies and minimizes change orders during construction. Marx|Okubo’s evaluation allowed for a collaborative approach between architecture and engineering design professionals in order to provide the highest quality product without unnecessary costs.
