Miles Construction has deep roots in Nevada, starting with CEO/President Bill Miles, a true Nevada native. This is not just where we work, but also where we live and raise our families. We’re invested in seeing our community succeed. That includes contributing to the region’s economic and environmental well-being.
Our projects touch the lives of northern Nevada residents. We’ve worked on local elementary, middle and high schools; a multi-purpose athletic center; and fire stations that are so critical to public safety. We’ve led the charge on several large-scale warehouses and manufacturing facilities at the booming Tahoe Reno Industrial Center as well as other areas of northern Nevada, including Douglas County, Carson Valley and more.
Miles Construction has recently had the privilege to work on impactful projects such as the revolutionary Aqua Metals, Inc. aqua-refinery facility at Tahoe Reno Industrial Center, the world’s first commercial scale electro-chemical lead battery recycling plant. This project is a great example of our mission of creating sustainable, environmentally friendly projects that make a better community for all of us.
In Minden, Nevada, Miles is proud to have a partnership with Bently Enterprises. In 2015 Miles completed a renovation of the historic Farmer’s Bank building into the Bently Enterprises headquarters office. Taking a building that is more than 100 years old and converting it to a sustainable, Platinum LEED-certified building presented a worthy challenge to the Miles team.
Another focus Miles has is renovation and adaptive reuse – that is, creating a new, more relevant use for an existing space. Starting with Whitney Peak Hotel, Miles has become the go-to contractor for the revitalization of downtown Reno. Miles has systematically renovated the entire Whitney Peak building, making it one of Reno’s most popular and distinctive hotel properties. Miles is currently wrapping up a transformation of the old Siena to a Marriott Renaissance, another great example of revitalization of the community.
When it comes to building a future for Nevada, Miles gets involved from the ground up. That means we work with local community college, Western Nevada College, to help establish construction-based classes and curriculum that will help students succeed in real-world scenarios. This helps build a stronger, more prepared work force with employees who are ready to fill the jobs needed to keep pace with the booming construction industry in our state.
In addition to being involved with education, Miles’ partners actively participate in the community by being involved on various boards, industry and economic development organizations. Bill Miles’ current community involvement includes the Boys & Girls Club of Northern Nevada and the Builders Association of Western Nevada. Cary Richardson serves on the State Environmental Commission, as a member of the Institutional Advisory Council for Western Nevada Community College and as a member of the Design Construction Committee for Northern Nevada Development Authority. Jerry Deines is involved with a number of organizations in Storey County.
We’ll continue to do our part to help build a better future for our community because it’s not only important to our business, but it’s important to us as residents, employees and neighbors.
