For over twenty years Alfred Miller Contracting has been providing shop-applied and field fireproofing services to the petrochemical industries. We have completed projects as large as one million square feet and shipped fireproofed steel from Coast to Coast. Whether your project requires Concrete, Lightweight or Epoxy Intumescent fireproofing applied in our state-of-the-art shop or after erection on site, Alfred Miller Contracting can handle the job.
With our in-house engineering staff, we can design and construct industrial and commercial buildings ranging from a small MCC to a large multi story complex. We utilize our extensive knowledge of precast concrete construction with 3D BIM design to create high quality and cost effective structures that can be erected with remarkable speed and efficiency.
Design / Build Construction
Making use of 3D design capabilities, we can fabricate any number of unique precast concrete solutions to meet your individual challenges. From insulated trenches to contain possible LNG spills to a WaffleCrete “dance floor” atop a piperack, we can help make your project more successful.
About Alfred Miller Contracting Co.
From our humble beginnings as a regional masonry contractor in Southwest Louisiana, Alfred Miller Contracting has grown into a thriving, nationwide contractor offering innovative solutions to Industrial and Commercial construction projects. Our business now consists of three complimentary, but distinct business units: General Contracting, Fireproofing, and Precast Manufacturing.
Ever since 1900, beginning with Titus Miller, the Miller family has played a major role in the growth of Southwest Louisiana. Titus Miller came to Lake Charles in the aftermath of the Great Galveston Hurricane of 1900 and formed Miller and Ory Construction. In 1925, Titus and his seven sons formed T. Miller and Sons Construction. In 1947, Titus' son Alfred Miller started his own masonry contracting business. Currently there are five companies managed by grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Titus Miller. We are in our fourth generation of Miller family leadership.
From office buildings, highways, schools, stadiums, shopping centers, hospitals to industrial buildings, the Millers have literally helped shape the region.

Precast Pipe Rack
AMC Presents Innovative Precast Pipe Rack Design at the Energy Construction Forum in Galveston, TX
Alfred Miller Contracting has developed an innovative system utilizing splice sleeve connections and moment frames to create a “Concrete Lego” pipe rack design that is erected with just a few people very efficiently. Since concrete is inherently corrosion and fire resistant, it eliminates the need for fireproofing – along with the associated scaffolding, schedule delays, quality issues and safety hazards.
This precast structure can be erected in less time, with around 1/3 of the field man-hours of a fireproofed steel structure and for less cost to the project.
This precast design perfectly embodies the Inherently Safer Design (ISD) concept. Precast eliminates the potential problems associated structural steel (i.e. corrosion and poor fire resistance) instead of attempting to control them with galvanizing (or paint) and fireproofing. In addition, precast is simpler to erect and reduces the man-hours required to provide a complete structure by as much as 70%, thereby proportionally reducing the potential for injuries during construction.
