Florida International University Mixed-Use Building
Florida International University's Mixed-Use Building will offer both students and staff a multipurpose space to aid in their research and quest for knowledge. This 88,000 SF will supply the College of Business Administration with office suites, PhD Office Spaces, a professional BBA program, additional workplaces for the Center for International business and Research, and two fully functional classrooms with eight breakrooms.
This building will also allow the FIU Online staff to acquire a total of 64 offices, a call center, a collaboration space with two training rooms and five conference rooms, a recording studio, a 150 seat testing lab and state of the art multimedia editing facilities.
The Mixed-Use building will also offer a specified area for three to four food vendors within a conveniently placed food court. High and low easily moveable table tops and lounge chairs appeal to a "coffee shop" aesthetic, providing efficiency and further embodying the multipurpose theme. This service section will also provide the opportunity to host private parties or catering events by closing off a luxurious seating area alongside a full service kitchen with prep space and cooking equipment.
Within a budget of $26,700,000 dollars, and a goal of achieving Silver LEED certification, this building will provide its users the proper resources to execute their tasks efficiently.
