This fast paced 10 week project included the demolition and re-construction of the entire first floor of the 3065 Cumberland Boulevard Building. The complex demolition phase included the removal of a data center including access flooring, chilled water Liebert HVAC units as well as the FM200 fire suppression system before the new construction could commence. The project schedule was also challenged by the operational executive conference space immediately below the work area that required The Blue River Group’s project team to be extremely sensitive to noise during work hours. To complete the project on schedule, all subcontracts were executed within 5 work days from notice to proceed. All submittals including a complete new HVAC system, Herculite doors, long lead plastic laminate selections, lighting and doors & hardware were critical to project completion and were submitted and approved within the first two weeks. In addition, The Blue River Group had to complete its above ceilings inspections in sections to allow the client to complete its tel/data reconfiguration requirements for not only the 1st floor but also switchover connections to the operational space on the floors above. In the end, the program manager, architect and construction team worked as a team to ensure the project was completed ahead of the required move schedule and under budget.
