Achieving New Heights in Excellence.

Suncoast was given the opportunity to partner with Tutor Perini and Baker Concrete on the Panorama Tower, the soon-to-be tallest building in Miami. Suncoast lent their engineering expertise to the construction by supplying post-tension and Suncoast SRS for 82 of the 84-story mixed-use building. The Panorama Tower consists of 18 levels of parking and hotel with an amenities deck with the upper tower levels serving as office and condominium areas.

Post-Tension Quantity: 1,771,311 lbs PT; 11,253 SRS Assemblies

Exceeding Construction Challenges

Suncoast was selected by Baker Concrete as the Post-tension supplier due to the challenges faced by the construction sequence. In order for Baker Concrete to meet the date of completion, a challenging pour sequence was required and Suncoast met those challenges at every turn. Suncoast provided engineering solutions to build areas of the 18 parking lower levels in phases but at the same time maintaining the continuation of structural elements. Working in conjunction with DeSimone Engineering, Suncoast Post-Tension was the design Engineer for Tower levels 2100 to 8200.

The design engineering services provided by Suncoast allowed for the core areas of the tower to be built in less time to maintain scheduling goals set by Baker Concrete.
