SFWMD AWARDS SCEC CONTRACT FOR HOMESTEAD PROJECT
SCEC is proud to announce that the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) has awarded SCEC a $12.8 million contract for the Homestead Field Station Building Replacements Project.
This design-build project consists of the replacement of the existing office, maintenance, fuel island, and generator buildings and related components at the southern Miami-Dade County field station. The existing facilities were built before modern hurricane standards and have reached the end of their service life.
SCEC has been working with our partner Carty Architecture to complete the design of the new modernized facility over the past year. SCEC looks forward to breaking ground in February 2021 on the project.
The 8,000 SF office will house 26 personnel and feature a conference room, break room, locker rooms, showers and work room. The 13,000 SF maintenance building will have six maintenance bays with equipment for the repair and maintenance of the district’s largest vehicles.
The SFWMD is a regional governmental agency that manages the water resources in the southern half of Florida. Created in 1949, it is the oldest and largest of the state's five water management districts. The agency is responsible for managing and protecting water resources of South Florida by balancing and improving flood control, water supply, water quality and natural systems.
