Construction on our new facility in downtown Miami’s Museum Park is well underway. Things are always happening at the construction site, with a continuous number of milestones, both big and small. Over the past few days, the Museum has begun the precast process on the exterior of the building, a significant and visual phase of the construction. These exterior walls will be the first distinct design element guests will encounter as they approach the building. Designed by Grimshaw Architects, each individual precast panel weighs roughly 25 tons and measures approximately 32 feet tall, 12 feet wide and 10.5 inches thick. How many pounds is 25 tons? 50,000. Imagine trying to carry that!
