DGD Transport played an integral role in the development and construction of the Zaha Hadid-designed One Thousand Museum. The 62-story high-rise, named “The Scorpion Tower,” is currently under construction in the heart of downtown Miami, DGD’s stomping grounds.
“When Chris Rich from 1000 Museum called us to get a quote for this project, we got right to work,” said Luis Lopez, DGD Transport’s CEO. “The entire office had a hand in this project because they needed so many services.”
Joe Cerri’s Plaza Construction was hired to complete the “Impossible Build,” and DGD Transport was responsible for more than a handful of services to make the impossible possible. We’re not only honored to have had the chance to work with Cerri and his crew, we’re also proud of our fleet’s professional successful completion of each service provided.
“The Scorpion Tower” Build-Out by DGD Transport
We provided crane service to facilitate loading and unloading cradles of construction material from our LowBoy RGN equipment. Construction materials are historically considered Heavy Hauling which requires equipment that can haul more weight legally than the standard chassis. Cranes are the only way to move the cradle from the LowBoy RGN to the floor on the construction site and back on the LowBoy for return of the cradle.
Our in-house customs team processed forms to allow customs clearance for the cradles of material coming into the Port of Miami. We provided consultation on the proper process of importation while completing the required forms to make ensure a smooth process that would not cause delays for the receipt of material.
Escorts & Permits
Due to excessive weights and Department of Transportation regulation, we escorted the cradles of construction materials from the Port to our Yard for storage. Then we provided escort service from our storage to the construction site. This is necessary for safe transport of the materials and safety of the general public commuting alongside a heavy load.
Our team managed permits for transport of material on specialty equipment( LOWBOY, RGN).
We stored and managed cradles of construction material in our secure yard and maintained inventory. Materials were all kept under 24/7 security with inventory levels checked and updated on a daily basis.
We supplied local delivery services to 1000 Museum using our low boy and landoll’s and offloaded the cradles of material at the construction site via crane.
