Challenges and Solutions: DPR saved the owner $300,000 by working with DeKalb County and the project schedule to eliminate the need for a DeKalb/EPA mandated sanitary sewer retention system. The project team worked closely with the FAA and the Peachtree-DeKalb Airport for months in order to use cranes on the project since the project site is located 2,000-ft. off the end of their main runway. Despite several scheduling challenges involving the AHJ’s and the design team, and having 35 claimed rain days, the project team was able to move the two tenants in by the contractual dates.
The project had more than 20% Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) from the Marta DBE list and had over 30% overall DBE participation from the City of Atlanta list.
