The new Telemundo Studios Miami Operations’ Shop was implemented with its launch at the beginning of 2012 and it immediately impacted the Studios’ Operations and the Novelas' Productions. The Shop fulfilled the desire, overwhelmed and surpassed all the Studios' expectations. With about 10,000 square feet of space for production and staging, the Shop environment is equipped with the best and updated working tools and machinery to ensure paramount results. Our new infrastructure allows for twenty-four hours of work a day with the comforts of full air conditioning for the shop staff and also for optimal drying of materials. In addition, our personnel consists of some of Miami’s finest tool men, who are highly trained and experienced in the industry and are knowledgeable about safety standards. “Safety first” is our motto and a top priority for Telemundo Studios’ shop operators.
The Operations Shop also has a state of the art CNC router machine that revolutionized the Productions end results with its exquisite, sophisticated, elegant and contemporary results. The CNC router machine is a computer controlled cutting machine related to the hand held router used for cutting various hard materials, such as wood, composites, aluminum, steel, plastics, and foams which have resulted in extra ordinary end product results for the Novelas and different Studio areas.
The Studios’ Shop Operations build all the Production sets, cover all the carpentry, finishing, delivery, repairs and all Special Effects projects for the Studios LIVE Novela’s Production. Under the supervision of Shop’s Director the staff is gathered sometimes around the clock and endure long tedious hours to fulfill the required needs of Operations and the various Production requests.

Our team works diligently to provide the best custom pieces for all the Novelas' sets.
The Shop Operations consist of a Special Projects team, which produce global product development for our Miami and Mexico productions. The special projects started over 12 years ago and have been producing original content for Hispanics in the United States. Over 50 projects have been created since 2003. For years the SP team has designed, and implemented a myriad of projects with the specific requirements for the different Novela Productions.
Any special effects and products that are required are done internally by our tools men. Special Projects has designed our facilities to provide each production with exceptional results and built well equipped studios.
Our Special Projects Shop Department offers specialized technical assistance in the handling of iron and aluminum welded structures needed for productions or other departments within Telemundo Studios.

These pieces can create different atmospheres in the same location. The Shop offers a professional setup and breakdown of the sets that covers all aspects of the launch of a project.
