GLE was commissioned to provide full architectural and engineering services to develop the design, prepare construction documents and provide bidding and construction administration services for an approximate 18,000 square foot (SF) City Hall office building for the City of Cape Canaveral.
The design implements the City’s future space needs and their current Overlay District requirements, which includes surface parking located at rear of building with pedestrian access, building orientation towards A1A to encourage pedestrian activity, articulation and human scale, entry treatments for dominant front and rear entries and building elements and colors inspired from adjacent city facilities to create a campus atmosphere. The design also reflects the City’s motto of Sun, Space and Sea by incorporating unique site elements such as a sundial surrounded by an abstract representation of the solar system and a water feature.
GLE designed the entire electrical system for the whole building, this included coordinating with the local utility for the main power, coordinating with the civil engineer for site lighting, coordinating with the A/V for the council chambers and mechanical engineer for the HVAC system for the building. Produced photometric calculations and drawings, calculated the voltage drop and load on each panel board, including fault current for each panelboard, provided for multi-tenant set up. New lighting and lighting controls were installed with LED type and Fluorescent type fixtures for the tenant build outs.
