Home Furnishings Retailer

IKEA Stores

IMEG has provided structural engineering design services for several U.S. IKEA stores, which sells its ready-to-assemble furniture, appliances and home accessories. Founded 71 years ago in Sweden, the privately owned IKEA is the world’s largest home-furnishings retailer.

 

Outlets for which IMEG has provided design services to date include:

 

MIAMI, FL: This $72.4 million, 1,050,000-SF project includes a 416,000-SF outlet built atop two levels of parking with spaces for 1,500 cars. The store has 44 room settings, three model home interiors, a supervised children’s play area, and a 600-seat restaurant. A 4,620-panel solar array on the roof is capable of generating 1.74 million kilowatt hours of electricity and reducing the store’s potential carbon dioxide emissions by 1,227 tons annually. In addition to structural design, IMEG also provided construction administration services. Structural components of the project included 2,820 pieces of precast concrete, 2,770 tons of structural steel/joists, 2,470 auger cast piles, and 1,050 tons of concrete-reinforcing steel. This project was completed in June 2014, opened in August 2014, and is the largest IKEA on the East Coast.

In addition to structural design, IMEG also provided mechanical and plumbing design services. Plans included the installation of 2,850 solar panels on the roof, an array capable of generating 1.35 million kilowatt hours of electricity and reducing the store’s potential carbon dioxide emissions by 930 tons annually. The facility also is the second U.S. IKEA location to have a geothermal heating and cooling system.
