  • Managed simultaneous projects under one roof while meeting a demanding schedule to have the 6,000 sq. ft. Neurology Clinic treating patients months prior to the completion of the remaining 19,000 sq. ft. Oncology Center
  • Built a 1,300 sq. ft. platform, on the roof supported by steel columns more than 25 ft. long, that holds four chillers and the substantial boiler plant
  • Identified imperfections in existing building structure including coordinating and executing the replacement of failed glulam beams integral to the roof system. This involved emergency shoring to keep the tenants safe and coordinated efforts to create the timeline for replacement
