The Okaloosa County Tourist Development Department (TDD) commissioned Matrix to perform a series of tasks to facilitate the development of capital improvement opportunities for the Emerald Coast Convention Center (ECCC). We leveraged our experience with the local area, the State of Florida, and throughout the county to successfully address the requirements outlined by the Okaloosa County TDD. A working dialogue proved critical in meetings and public engagements with internal and external Okaloosa County agencies and officials. The Matrix approach includes an iterative and collaborative methodology to continuously receive and provide the inputs, research and analysis to meet our project objectives.  Our analysis provided basic design concepts including space requirements, Rough Order of Magnitude (ROM) cost estimates, summary of constraints and opportunities, and other parametric-level services vital in ensuring we met the objectives of the County.
