News » RSI Celebrates: The Dalí Museum’s 10th Anniversary

RSI Celebrates: The Dalí Museum’s 10th Anniversary

On January 11th, the Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg celebrated its 10th anniversary. The vision for the museum was to create a building that reflected Dali’s style both inside and out, and RSI played an integral role in accomplishing that vision by handling the concrete work for the project, a $30 million, 66,400-square-foot structure. The museum is now home to more than 2,000 works including nearly 100 oil paintings; over 100 watercolors and drawings; and 1,300 prints, photographs, sculptures and other pieces of art.

Architectural firm HOK’s Tampa office designed the new museum in collaboration with the Tampa office of Walter P. Moore as structural engineer. The structure combines the rational with the fantastical: a simple rectangle with 18-inch thick hurricane-proof walls out of which erupts a large free-form geodesic glass bubble with 1,062 glass panels known as “The Enigma.” The building is designed to withstand a Category 5 hurricane and was built with 10,000 yards of concrete and includes 1,000 tons of reinforcing steel. Building strengths were measured at more than 7,500 psi.

“...we were worried about using architectural concrete for the design of the new Dali Museum. RSI did an extraordinary job and we couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. We are all very proud of the way the museum turned out, thanks in large part to RSI.”—internationally renowned architect Yann Weymouth of HOK.

A major focal point of the new Dalí Museum is a 56-foot-high spiral concrete staircase that starts in the building’s first floor lobby, carries visitors to the third-floor atrium, and winds upward into a taper toward the top of the building’s glass atrium.

Weymouth’s design for the staircase included the use of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) – the first building in Florida to use cast-in-place SCC as an exposed architectural concrete finish.  SCC is a typical concrete mix doused with admixtures to make the mix highly flowable.  RSI worked very closely with the design team to ensure their vision, and the end result was beautiful, smooth and seamless walls.

RSI’s efforts paid off by having the opportunity to be part of the construction of a landmark building, which was awarded the Associated Builders and Contractors Excellence in Construction Project of the Year 2011.

“A lot of teamwork went into this building,” says RSI president Steve Whitley. “When we got this job we picked an A-Team, from the concrete supplier to the formwork supplier to the reinforcing supplier. Along with the structural engineer, general contractor and architect, we were all involved in planning. It was an interesting job and everyone was involved in making the project a success.”

RSI provided a turnkey concrete package for the building, including the dramatic, curved concrete roof over the 20,000 square foot, open-plan building. The roof looks melted by the Florida heat, but is actually twelve-inch thick concrete that gracefully drapes over the main entrance and sides and serves as a shade from the relentless Florida sun.

“We were honored when Coastal Construction chose us to help create such a beautiful and important building that highlights the craft, creativity, and ability of RSI’s team,” said Steve Whitley, CEO of RSI. “On such a complicated building, a great design by Arquitectonica and fantastic construction management by Coastal really made our job easy” continued Steve. “We’re thrilled that the project won and thrilled to have played a small role with these two power-house firms.”

The building is named in memory of Thomas P. Murphy, Sr., the father of Tom Murphy, Jr., the President and CEO of Coastal Construction Group, the general contractor for the project.

RSI Tops Out Edgewater Beach Resort

RSI completed the roof pour and top-out for the Edgewater Beach Resort on Treasure Island.

As indicated in the photos, RSI’s work will continue on the amenities level of the project. Moss & Associates, the general contractor, chose to complete the tower portion of the project first and to have RSI fall back to complete the amenities deck on the second level. That allowed subsequent work such as stucco, painting, interior finishes, etc., to take place on the tower.

The overall building size when finished will be approximately 180,000 square feet, with about 150,000 square feet of structural, post-tensioned desks.

RSI will conclude the concrete portion of the project by the end of the year and looks forward to continuing to work closely with Moss & Associates to ensure on-time and within-budget completion.

RSI Awarded Salvador Condominiums Project

RSI will be providing cast-in-place concrete services for the new Salvador condominiums project in downtown St. Petersburg, including the foundations, vertical work, and two post-tensioned structural decks totaling just under 50,000 square feet. The work is slated to take 20 weeks.

To meet the owner’s aggressive budget, Kellogg & Kimsey and RSI divided the building into its two structural components, the cast-in-place portion and the hollow-core portion.

“The budgeting and negotiation process was a total team effort between Kellogg & Kimsey and RSI,” said Steve Whitley, CEO.  “Although we’ve performed well on past hollow-core jobs, it worked well for us to end up with a portion of work that is in our sweet spot.  I think it’s a real win-win for the Owner, K&K, and RSI and we’re looking forward to a great job together.”

Inspired by Salvador Dali and designed by Mesh Architecture, the 74 Salvador residences will feature artful and innovative living in St. Pete’s first green-certified condominium tower. Home sizes will range from 964 – 2,795 square feet with numerous luxuries both inside and out, including an expansive 11,000 square foot third-floor amenity deck.
