Miami International Commerce Center was a highly involved project that required the work of Advanced’s roofing, mechanical and electrical divisions. The three office buildings, located in Doral, were fully-occupied at the time of installation, so special arrangements had to be made to keep from disturbing the occupants as much as possible. Work on these buildings began at 5 a.m., so the noisiest work could be completed before employees arrived.
Because of the high traffic of the buildings, Advanced’s crane had to be brought in during non-work hours, so delivery of materials had to be coordinated with that as well. A Garlock Supermax 2000 Hoist was used throughout the project for downloading, and debris was lowered through a trash shoot.
Work did not stop with the new Soprema modified bitumen roof system. A large amount of electrical work was required to bring the buildings up to code. Advanced was required to remove steel I-beams, install all new air conditioning stands, and install new mechanical screen walls. Advanced was able to do all of this without bringing in outside contractors.
Project Manager Thomas Hanzl coordinated with other restoration firms performing work on the buildings, while Construction Manager David Baytosh coordinated Advanced’s different divisions. Van Antel, with Adler Property Management, oversaw the project for the owner.
