The Brickell Flatiron collaboration is a classic example of the Zahner Assist process, which delivers an enhanced value to the Design Assist phase by developing system details, project budgets, and engineering specifications that create a general framework that the construction team can easily follow throughout the fabrication and installation phase.
Brickell flatiron is a 64-story residential high rise in Miami, Florida.
Brickell Flatiron is a residential high-rise that towers above the Brickell district of Miami, Florida, at 736 ft. The name “flatiron” references the triangular lot that the 64-floor condominium sits on.
Zahner engineered and fabricated a custom perforated-metal facade for the 13-story Brickell Flatiron Parking Garage.
Zahner worked closely with the architect, Luis Revuelta, and CMC Group to support the design and pricing exercises of the 13-story parking garage façade at the building podium. In total, the design team went through four iterations before ultimately determining that the final design both creatively complimented the curvilinear forms of the architecture above and met the established budget.

Once the design and budget were finalized, we continued to work with Moss Construction to coordinate the engineering and lead time for delivery. Zahner also produced a full-scale visual mockup for the architect’s approval and self-performed the installation on-site.
After the building was topped-out, the owner and architect felt the desire for an extra façade at the crown. Zahner successfully delivered the extra scope under a tight timeline.
When the tower was completed, Zahner provided an extra facade at the crown on a tight schedule.
Zahner Assist makes any project possible. From design, prototyping and engineering, to fabrication and installation, we have the experience and engineering acumen under one roof to make projects feasible, affordable, and incredible.
