Expect the unexpected. That phrase is particularly relevant during renovation of a historic building. Miles Construction has the skills to meet unexpected challenges head-on with creative solutions. And through the solid relationships we’ve built throughout the construction process, we’re able to quickly get past the surprises of a historic renovation without sidetracking a project.
Take for example our work with Bently Enterprises, Inc. including Bently Farmers Bank Building and Bently Heritage Estate Distillery. Renovation of the historic Farmers Bank Building built in Minden, Nevada more than a century ago, led to receiving LEED Platinum certification under the LEED for Interior Design and Construction: Commercial Interiors rating system. It is the only building in the state to certify LEED Platinum under this rating system.
Miles was the general contractor for the Farmers Bank Building, working with JP Copoulos Architect and Nichols Booth Architects, on the restoration project with specific attention to sustainable construction techniques, water and energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
The opportunity to work with Bently Heritage Estate Distillery meant taking the owner’s vision to reality. The 100-year-old structures went through a transformation from it’s origin as the Minden Flour Mill & Creamery buildings to an advanced manufacturing operation restored to modern LEED certified standards. The renovation process required expertise in historic preservation and manufacturing. We worked to achieve a best-in-class outcome using the highest quality materials, equipment, processes and installation techniques. The result is a fully-restored historic landmark that is also an advanced manufacturing facility. Bently Heritage Estate Distillery is producing premium distilled spirits crafted from locally-sourced grain for a true estate distillery moniker and a visitor experience that is unlike anything else in the west.
