When negotiating the path to a successful tenant improvement project, patience and consideration are law.
The challenges in remodeling this 16,000 square foot space for the new tenants revolved around limitations at the site. The complete demolition of the 3rd and 4th floor interior space created a large amount of construction debris that had to be removed using only one window on each floor.
Secondly, approximately 25 percent of the fourth floor was occupied by an existing tenant until a week and a half prior to the client's move-in date. Cognizant of this tenant's need to conduct business in the midst of our work, we worked around their schedule to move materials and carpenters up to the space. It was also necessary to construct temporary, fire-rated demising walls in order to obtain a temporary occupancy permit.
Finally, our finish work was coordinated around the installation of our client's modular furniture, data and telecommunications programming and conference room furniture, allowing the client to move in on time without disruption to any of their business. A design/build approach to the electrical and mechanical work and clear communication with the client and architects Tim Bruce and Del Starrett, were key components to the success of this project.
The resulting space features an inviting reception area with a curved, granite countertop and tall, monument fountain. The neutral tones and open space for office workstations offer a calm and supportive environment for work. The conference room, also used every Friday for company socials, features coffered ceilings, mahogany casework, motorized shades, and a plasma screen television with an audio/visual system that is connected to the client's data/telecom system.
