Humana CAC Little Havana | Project Designer, 2013-present

This new, 36,000 square foot Humana CAC Little Havana health care clinic will become the flagship location for CAC Florida Medical Centers and the design will influence the design direction for all future CAC buildings.

In my role as Project Designer, I developed all aspects of the building design, from the textured exterior precast panels to the monumental stair details in the two story lobby. As the HOK representative for the project, I have cultivated a good relationship with our client, Humana, and have earned the trust of their subsidiary company and the end users, CAC.

Construction is scheduled to be completed in December 2015. This project will revitalize its location in the neighborhood of Little Havana. It will make contemporary, high-end Miami-inspired design accessible to those who might not otherwise be exposed to it, all while creating a setting in which the best quality health care can be provided.
