Miller Construction Company has started site work on a 199,643-sq. ft. warehouse for Seagis Property Group just outside Fort Lauderdale’s Port Everglades. The project team includes Ware Malcomb Architects, Puga & Associates, Inc. (MEP), DDA Engineers (structural) and Langan Engineering (civil).
Located at 1700 Eller Dr. in Hollywood, the warehouse will provide distribution, logistics and e-commerce tenants statewide reach with access to Florida’s Turnpike, I-95 and I-595. The load bearing, tilt-wall structure is scheduled to be delivered in the second half of 2023.
“Florida’s industrial needs continue to grow, and with our client Seagis Property Group, we aim to deliver state-of-the-art industrial space to the market,” Millier Construction president Brian Sudduth said in a statement. “With supply chain issues still hindering import and export, having the opportunity to support a major South Florida hub like Port Everglades is important for our community.”
The building will be equipped with standard 54-foot by 50-foot bays, a 60-foot speed bay and 36-foot clear-height ceilings. During preconstruction, Miller’s team was brought in to assess the land and recommended the need to increase the bearing capacity of the structure with the use of Controlled Modulus Columns also known as rigid inclusions.
