Miro provided architectural and engineering services for the project. The Design Services Group from the U.S. teamed with the Miro U.S. and Abu Dhabi offices to evaluate the existing facility and develop the new exciting retail approach to supermarket sales for customers in the Al Khobar and Dammam area.
Miro developed the existing building drawings directly in electronic format on the site since there were no accurate as-built drawings. Miro utilized BIM technology through the Revit platform to develop project drawings/documents in three dimensions to help ensure the new requirements could be incorporated into the existing building and addition.
Miro met with the local building and planning department to present the new exterior concept and to review and permit submital issues. Miro developed the owner review, permit submital and tender documents which incorporated the new concepts into the documents including coordinating with owner supplied fixtures, point of sales and refrigeration systems. Miro engineers also communicated with the local geotechnical study providers and local manufacturers to provide efficient, constructable modifications to the existing building. The grand re-opening of the store occurred in May of 2011.
