Construction Management at Risk
The Advanced Planning team started working directly with the program staff to develop the project requirements and lay out the floor plan in a way that satisfied the client needs for space, adjacencies, future growth, and efficiency. The design includes new power distribution including an upgraded transformer from FP&L, new air-cooled chillers for a chilled water AC system, a new fiber feed from an adjacent LM property for the data distribution system, structural upgrades to the existing building, and a new parking lot with secure entrance and exits controlled by gates and a perimeter fence. Upon completion of the construction documents, the design team proceeded with the permitting process and the pre-construction team proceeded with the bidding process with a group of pre-qualified subcontracting base. The construction of B811 interior fit began in August of 2021 was completed in April 2022.
During the procurement and pre-construction, we identified multiple items that could be pre-purchased before the full award of the construction project. This pre-purchase of material ensured that long lead material would be on-site when needed to meet the project schedule and locked-in pricing due to a volatile market.
