The DPR project team work closely with city inspectors and existing building tenants to get the project permitted, inspected, and delivered efficiently and timely. Before construction began, a team alignment meeting was held with the client, the construction management firm and the architect to ensure the goals of each party involved would be met.
Throughout the job, DPR presented field opportunities for improvement and cost savings for their review. For instance, after evaluating utility service delivery methods for the labs, DPR suggested ceiling surface panels as a cost-effective solution.
To address the challenge of lacking a staging area within the occupied building, DPR took advantage of empty rooms and used them as material laydown areas while other rooms were being completion.
