Miller Construction Company, a statewide, privately-held construction firm, has begun site work on an 80,000-square-foot warehouse for MSI in Orlando, Florida. MSI is the leading nationwide distributor of flooring, countertops, wall tile and hardscaping products in North America. The build-to-suit project will serve the company’s evolving storage and distribution needs in the Southeast.
Located at 2140 North John Young Parkway in Orlando, the industrial site spans 3.53 acres with convenient access to the area’s major highways: I-4 and 408 Expressway. The tilt wall structure is scheduled to be delivered in the first half of 2024.
“Central Florida has had immense growth over the last few years with many major businesses setting up shop locally and we are excited to partner with MSI on their first project in the area,” said Brian Sudduth, President of Miller Construction. “Our firm plans to execute our construction plan efficiently with top-notch service and reliability for our client.”
The warehouse will have 25 columns with 50-foot by 54-foot spacing, 29 parking spots, 13 dock doors (some with recessed truck wells for deliveries), full warehouse lighting, exhaust fans and louvers. Miller will also include tenant buildouts of four private office spaces and one open office space measuring roughly 9,500 square feet. Additionally, Miller’s team is installing a unique internal crane rail system to lift and move flooring and countertop products around the warehouse.
MSI has valued Miller’s preconstruction team during the planning process as the site is extremely tight for a tilt-wall construction project. Precision will be key for the team with only about eight feet of clearance between the neighboring Tesla Dealership on the south side of the property line.
The project team includes Eleven18 Architecture, Construction Engineering Group (MEP), Gutherman Structural Inc. (structural) and NV5 (civil).
