Miller Building High-Tech Manufacturing Facility For Sintavia, the Tier One Metal Additive Manufacturer
Miller Construction Company is on track for spring 2019 delivery of a new 55,000-square-foot headquarters for pioneering metal additive manufacturer Sintavia.
Sintavia plans to add 110 jobs at the new Class A facility, which will house administrative offices and over $25 million of advanced manufacturing equipment, according to Sintavia CEO Brian Neff. “With 3D printers and other technology accelerating our industry’s growth, we expect our new headquarters to serve as a template for future additive manufacturing facilities worldwide,” he said. “Precision and craftsmanship are the lifeblood of our industry, and Miller brings those same qualities to creating Sintavia’s new home.”
Miller is handling construction of the two-story structure and building out the administrative and manufacturing areas. When completed, the facility at 2500 SW 39th Street will enable Sintavia to meet fast-growing demand for customized metal parts from the aerospace, defense, oil and natural gas, automotive and ground power generation industries. Designed by FSMY Architects to streamline workflow for the vertically integrated manufacturer, the facility will maximize efficiency of product design, production, post-processing and testing with equipment including 3D metal printers, hot isostatic presses, vacuum furnaces, a metallurgical and mechanical lab, post-processing equipment and a CT scanner.
Working closely with FSMY and Sintavia’s data consultant, Miller Construction will assist in installing the equipment and is preparing the data drops that will feed high capacity 6000-amp electrical service throughout the company’s mission-critical network. Administrative spaces will feature imported tile in the lobby and elevator areas and other upscale finishes. Other project team members are KAMM Consulting (MEP), MUE Engineers, Inc. (structural) and Flynn Engineering Services, P.A. (civil).
“Sintavia’s project gives us a window on technology’s potential as a key driver for Broward’s economic growth,” said Miller President Brian Sudduth. “That’s been the area’s vision for years, and it’s great to see the reality taking shape,” he added.
