Sustainability case study
The Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science (FMOS) project is a state-of-the-art, 280,000-SF, multi-use science and technology museum, planetarium and aquarium being constructed in Museum Park in the Greater Miami Downtown area. The world-class, five-story facility includes office, ticketing, concessions, restaurant and amenities, as well as a 220-space below-grade parking garage. All new buildings (North Building, West Building, Parking Garage, and Living Core) are interconnected. The project includes the fit-out of 3,500-SF of tenant space, which is located across the street from the main jobsite. The project also includes the construction of all underground utilities and the main road. The new FMOS project is connected to the existing Museum of Art by a common plaza. Our team has been working adjacent to this active museum since our first day onsite.
The project has been submitted for LEED Gold certification and plans to share the data on its sustainability initiatives with visitors. It is expected that the project will save 27 percent energy compared to a similar building type, accomplished through demand control ventilation, efficient lighting, natural ventilation and white and green roofs. Onsite photovoltaic panels generate power for the building. By collecting rainwater for irrigation and HVAC makeup, the museum saves 350,000 gallons of city water annually, while using graywater for flushing toilets and urinals saves an additional 250,000 gallons annually.
