The Amazon Prime facility, located in Miami, Florida, was a 116,783 square foot design-build renovation for Amazon Corporate, LLC. The scope of work included the remodel of office areas, new entrance and exit ramps as well as the installation of upgraded overhead doors and dock equipment.
Design upgrades included architectural, structural, civil, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, lighting and refrigeration services. Mechanical system design included evaluating the existing refrigeration system, design of new direct expansion refrigeration systems, plumbing, and HVAC modifications to the existing warehouse and office areas.
The project was defined by an extremely aggressive schedule and tight budget, and included ambient storage space for large scale, bulk food as well as extensive refrigerated and frozen food spaces. The cold storage areas were constructed using insulated metal panels (IMP) and FDA-compliant protective concrete curbs and stainless steel flashing.
