MIA SHOES, INC.
Design and construction of an 87,418-square-foot warehouse facility laden with style and flair. Completed in 2002
The building consists of load-bearing panels that support the precast concrete second floor and roof framing system. Precast double tees and beams are supported on continuous concrete haunches cast monolithically with the panels.
This facility is anything but a boxy warehouse and the architectural treatments that were utilized greatly enhance the visual appeal of the building. Tilt-Up was selected for this project because of its ability to provide both a functional workplace and architectural versatility. Special attachments were designed that would not disturb the exterior features of the facility. Panels were arranged in an eye-catching stair-step pattern and balconies extend from the second floor offices. Cast-in-place concrete eyebrows and canopies were cast after the panels were erected and are supported by the panels. Many of the outside faces of the panels are 75 percent covered with reveals and recesses. Further, the visual interest is enhanced by the corner feature panel that includes a 15-foot horizontal cantilever, reveals and eyebrows on each side.
This project was a 2004 Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) Achievement Award Winner in the Distribution/Warehouse category.
