Requirements

With the purpose of promoting and selling the ’57 Ocean’ apartments to prospective clients, HTS was asked to design and manufacture a sales office structure to match the beautiful and exclusive surroundings of Miami Beach. The office was to be located on the ground floor whilst the first floor was transformed to resemble one of the luxury high-end residential apartments. The following requirements needed to be met:

  • The structure needed the strength to withstand the sometimes harsh Atlantic coastal climate.
  • Site space was restricted due to the demolition of a former condo and strict regulatory procedures needed to be adhered to.
  • As the installation was to be for a 3 year period, the design needed to meet a 140mph wind-load for a 25 year MRI which is well above the average building code required for a temporary structure.
  • Florida Building Code insisted that all cladding materials met their product code approval. There were other concerns relating to the beach front location; windows and lighting from the structure needed to meet light pollution requirements for nesting turtles.

Correct planning was essential to ensure that all issues were identified well ahead of time, ensuring a smooth execution.

Solution

Taking just 8 weeks from start to finish, the structure fits beautifully with the luxurious setting of ’57 Ocean.’

The structure designed, manufactured and installed by HTS was to the following specification:

  • 1 custom-design 2-storey structure – 15.00m wide x 18.00m long
  • 00m side height
  • Tensioned vinyl roof
  • Specified to meet the required 140mph wind-load for a 25 year MRI
  • All cladding met the required product codes
  • Manufactured and installed within 8 weeks

OSHA representatives ensured that all safety regulations were met during the demolition and new installation.

Teams from HTS and Cavossa Management worked in close collaboration with Cavossa Management to deliver a stunning interior fit-out, demonstrating just what can be achieved with a solid team of experts.
