Civic Center & City Hall of Pembroke Pines

After years of delay, Pembroke Pines proudly unveiled its new city center during a well-attended, public ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 19th, 2017. The building has a modern design that includes a 167,000-square-foot civic center with a 3,500-seat, acoustically designed grand hall for the performing arts, banquets and exhibitions. There is a full-service kitchen, dressing rooms and green rooms, a grand lobby, and the administrative offices for the city. Adjacent to the grand lobby is the commission chambers building and an art gallery named “The Frank” after the city's long-standing mayor

This project had tilt-up walkways and porte-cocheres. Tilt-up allowed for full-height wall sections that support a clear-span joist system over the grand hall. The tilt-up method also posed some challenges. Since there was limited room on site to accommodate almost 180,000 square feet of wall paneling, several casting and erection sequences were required.

Many of the wall panels were cast with temporary concrete sections in order to resist lifting stresses during erection and accommodate the unique architectural shapes of wall sections and angular glass openings. These temporary concrete sections were then cut out and removed (carefully) once all the final structural connections were complete.
