Independence Station

The vision of Independence Station is a retail/commercial center that offers the best in sustainable development, efficient office space, and the latest in green construction technology. This LEED project required careful consideration of the structural systems as they relate to the sustainability aspects of the building.

Miller Consulting Engineers, Inc. provided the engineering design for the structural systems of the building. The structure utilizes the latest technology in precast concrete shear walls, cast-in-place concrete shear walls, and Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) shear walls.

The design of this building required the structural systems be developed in a manner to utilize the vision of the owner for a highly efficient, green building, yet provide for the architectural features that make the pleasing, stylish facility function. The solar photo-voltaic panels over the roof of the structure are an example of the many special considerations for this building.

The unique challenges of this project required creativity in design and cooperation between the design and construction team members throughout.
