This was a fast tracked design and construction project. We were involved from early on in the design development stage. We worked closely with the architects and client, consulting on product and process recommendations and provided budgeting and schedule iterations, which allowed a variety of options in moving the project forward expeditiously and within the target budget. We actively supported the LEED certification process during all stages and integrated complex site, structural, mechanical, and finish system construction requirements.
