The client approached us with a struggling project that was under-designed and yet, significantly over-budget and behind schedule. In less than six weeks from authorization, we replaced the existing Engineer of Record, designed the building through several self-imposed Value Engineering iterations, issued foundations for permit, and co-authored the mill order model used by the Steel Fabricator to procure roughly 1,800 tons of structural steel.
The following weeks were spent finishing the member design, designing structural steel connections, seeing the foundation through procurement and construction, and responding to inquiries during fabrication, all in time for the erection of the first steel columns.
Client Success Story
