multiple companies to develop ways to create the exoskeleton. After reviewing many
options, "We started exploring this whole
idea of where you could use permanent
formwork for a vertical building as long as
the engineering was there," he says.
This led to the project team putting the
forms on the sides of the building and
filling them with concrete. Although this
shaved six months off the project schedule,
it required a substantial amount of coordination, Venger admits.
After the forms were shipped from oversees to Miami, assembled and transported
to the site, "Holding them together and
filling them with concrete logistically was
very challenging," he recalls.
The building's curved structure added to
the complexity. "Nothing is straight," he says.
"You've got to hold these massive columns
that are sloping on a floor-by-floor basis."
But the finished product sets 1000
Museum Tower from other buildings in the
area. "The exoskeleton is a shade of white,"
Fleckenstein says.

"It's completely unique compared to anything else that's down here."

Surviving Irma
Mother Nature presented her share of
challenges to 1000 Museum Tower when
Hurricane Irma hit Miami in September.
"The storms came on the 11th, but we started to prepare at least a week before," Venger
recalls. "We were preparing until the day
before the storm came."
That preparation paid off for Plaza and
the project team. "There's some damage
here and there with a few cabinets, doors
and some drywall, but we had no major issues on our project," he reports. "We always
knew that if this storm hit us during this
hurricane season, we would be the most
exposed. But we were able to weather it
without many issues. We're almost back to
normal operation throughout."

Keeping Busy
Venger sees a strong future for the 1000
Museum Tower project, which is staying on

schedule. "We will top off the building at
the end of this year and finish the building
by the end of next year," he says, adding
that only two more residential floors need
to be poured. "Then we have the aquatic
center and the helipad."
Fleckenstein also predicts Plaza will stay
busy in Miami. The City recently approved
the multi-block Miami World Center
development involving decommissioning
city streets and creating an open pedestrian
mall, now under construction a block from
the 1000 Museum Tower.
Plaza also will soon start building another tower in Miami. "There's plenty of work
down here," he says. "It isn't slowing down
in the Miami area at all."
Blanco Flooring has had the privilege to
work on the 1000 Museum Tower project in
Miami. Our team has a passion for perfect
installation of tiles. With 15 years in the
market of South Florida, we offer quality work
and an exceptional experience from start to
finish, on time.
