This project evolved considerably from concept to construction. What was originally conceived as a $6.9M project ended up as a $3.7M due to funding constraints dictated by the owner. These cost reductions were achieved by collaboration with the owner to a.) separate the buildings into different projects to allow the owner to pursue funding from alternate sources and b.) allow the owner to “self-perform” certain scopes of work with their own forces. Turning a metal building frame structure into a functional and attractive office space had its challenges. Shaw’s team listened to the owners needs, provided budget comparisons and executed solutions/upgrades that met the projects schedule, budget and quality.
