Although the owner – Miromar Development Corporation -- for this retail/office multi-use project was unfamiliar with Tilt-Up construction, the estimated cost savings of using site-cast instead of masonry won favor, making Tilt-Up the ideal solution.
Constructed in about eight months, the 270,000-square-foot project offers a high-end space with flexibility for a variety of tenants. With the tallest panel measuring 65 feet, recessed arched windows were central to the design theme and create a dramatic effect.
One of the challenges for this project was adhering to the project schedule even though the owner wanted elements of the project redesigned once the project had begun. To further complicate this situation, the owner decided to hire a new general contractor midstream.
Even in the face of these obstacles, the owner saved about $6 million dollars by converting the project from masonry and stucco to Tilt-Up.
