Their challenge

When one of VHA’s Florida hospitals needed engineering services, the department turned to Salas O’Brien. The Miami VA hospital was built on 26.3 acres of land in 1968, and today it serves the Dade, Broward, and Monroe counties of Miami—a combined region estimated to include over 150,000 veterans. The $2.2 million project involved the renovation of 63 public restrooms and a revision to the current plumbing and electrical service within each space.

Our solution

Salas O’Brien delivered plumbing and electrical design for this renovation. Our team also designed fire alarm and nurse call system upgrades and added new lighting and motion sensors to bring systems up to current energy code requirements.
