Miller Starts Construction of Easton Development’s Hialeah Gardens Industrial Center
Miller Construction has launched site work for the 266,760-square-foot Hialeah Gardens Industrial Center for Easton Development and LBA Logistics. Scheduled for completion in early 2022, the single-story, tilt-wall structure will rise on a 16.8-acre site assembled by Easton that stretches from NW 107 Avenue west to NW 109 Avenue, and from NW 142 Street north to NW 144 Street.
Responding to strong demand from distribution, logistics and e-commerce companies in Miami-Dade County that has been spurred by e-commerce growth during the pandemic, the project will create next-generation industrial space at a location close to Florida’s Turnpike, I-75, US-27 and the Miami International Airport.
To achieve Easton Development’s and LBA’s goal of adding volume for potential tenants, Miller worked closely with the project’s structural engineer, McVeigh Mangum of Jacksonville, to raise the building’s ceiling height to 36 feet. That customized tilt-wall panel design solution provided the owner with significant savings, according to Miller Construction President Brian Sudduth. Miller’s precise tilt-wall and structural steel estimates during preconstruction are adding cost efficiency.
The project team includes architect Ware Malcomb of Miami, Thomas Engineering Group of Fort Lauderdale (civil) and GM Consulting Engineers of Miami (MEP).
