Palm Beach Outlets & Marketplace

West Palm Beach, Fla.

Overview

The Palm Beach Outlets project in West Palm Beach, Fla., consisted of two phases. The first phase included demolition of the existing 1.4 million square-foot Palm Beach Mall to allow construction of the 465,000 square-foot development to begin. The Outlet Center is comprised of 10 individual buildings of various sizes with over 100 tenant spaces and a food court area. The first phase also involved the complete redevelopment of the entire 87-acre site and miles of new underground utilities. The second phase of the project included the construction of the outdoor marketplace and a power center with approximately 18 retail tenants.

Case Study

Alternative shade design yields two-month schedule improvement and saves client $4 million

 

During the planning phase of the Outlets, our team analyzed the original design for elements that could generate value. Our review revealed an expensive component of the project: shade structures connected to the building’s structural steel which would also extend the client’s ideal schedule.

Rather than using steel shade structures, our team proposed a combination of tensile steel cables and a deep, less-obtrusive foundation system.

The owner chose EMJ to continue with Phase 2 of the Marketplace project.

Unique Value:

By collaborating and scrutinizing the original design, our team generated an additional $2 million dollars in value for the client bringing our total value generation to approximately $4 million dollars. ­
