The largest building project in the University’s history.

Advanced preconstruction studies of the curtain wall system and terracotta rain screen created a collaborative “design-assist” environment that was critical to this custom component’s success.

Enabling infrastructure projects included the construction of the 600 car Adams Street Parking Garage.

Team-oriented value management reviews conducted during each design phase identified lower-cost design alternatives that maintained both quality and the schedule.

We minimized disruptions to the University campus and surrounding neighborhood through in-depth preconstruction logistics planning.

Aggressive scheduling in order to coordinate and synchronize with University’s academic schedule.
