In addition, Cardno’s quick responses during the review process of the micro pile locations enabled the concrete trade contractor to get the building out of the ground and begin construction on the superstructure faster.”

“We selected Cardno as our structural engineer for the IBM Columbus Center in Coral Gables, Florida largely because of their execllent reputation as structural engineers. Approximately one year from the building opening, Columbus Center took a direct hit from Hurricane Andrew. The building successfully stood up to the hurricane, only suffering damage to the clay tile roof (not a structural responsibility). Cardno’s design performed the way we expected, perfectly.”
