Approach

  • Ensured that the store design worked within the existing building’s constraints.
  • Provided concept design through construction documents— from concept to store opening in less than 7.5 months.
  • Site surveys, permitting issues and RFIs were tightly managed and expedited on a daily basis to minimize impact on the construction schedule.
  • Provided sustainability assessment and recommendations.
