ETM was responsible for site design, regulatory permitting, and construction administration of the 18-acre, 110,000-square foot corporate office of Nemours Children Hospital. The work effort included master planning for current and future development, engineering design, permitting connections to an existing master stormwater system, obtaining approval from the City of Jacksonville, as well as environmental resource permitting from the St. Johns River Water Management District. This new, flexible facility, allows Nemours, one of the nation’s largest children’s health systems, the ability to consolidate all of their business operations into one facility. This facility accomodates nearly 400 employees and provides more functional space for administration, business operations, training and meetings. Space limitations at its previous location, in addition to the desire to improve operating efficiency led to the decision to build. The facility was designed to support the Nemours culture and better serve the operations of the home office.
