FLORIDA GATEWAY COLLEGE TRAINING FACILITY
NFPS provided professional engineering services to Florida Gateway College to expand its Olustee Public Safety Training Center in 2017 to include a Fire Fighter training center. This training center now includes a three-story fire training structure and numerous fire training props. These include a vehicle simulator and dumpster, grill, flange, and propane tank props.
This project included developing site plans to construct a Fire Training Tower. The work included developing construction plans to add a Fire Tower at the FCG Olustee Training Facility. The major activities were road design, concrete slab design, plans, and calculations for obtaining a Suwannee River Water Management District permit, stormwater system design, coordinating geotechnical borings, coordinating water supply, working with FGC’s Construction Manager, and making plan changes during construction activities.
