French Alliance turns a former printing facility into its Miami “bureau”

April 01, 2008 |

McGowan Builders, Coral Gables, Fla., served nonprofit Alliance Française de Miami as general contractor for construction of its new facility in Miami, known as the Alliance Française Village. The $3.1 million project encompassed the renovation and conversion of a 5,000-sf, one-story warehouse and a 6,000-sf, two-story industrial building, as well as a 5,000-sf addition. The renovation and revitalization project transformed a former printing facility and an adjacent property into a cultural and educational center that houses 14 classrooms; reception area/lobby atrium; library; bookstore; large multipurpose and event space; offices; two meeting/break rooms; catering kitchen; and a retail component with six tenants, including a French café and a travel agency. Other Building Team members include the Miami office of architect/engineer HOK, MEP engineer SDM Consulting Engineers and structural engineer Bliss & Nyitray Inc., both of Coral Gables.
