This project focused on interior and exterior renovations to an existing 12,000 square foot building. Selective areas of the project’s interior were demolished to create two new foyers, 24-person conference room, reception area, lunch/break rooms, kitchen, open offices, restrooms, and private offices. The exterior work included demolition, site restoration, new concrete sidewalks, footings, curbs, masonry work, metal roofing, new windows, and stucco finish.


  • Required a two-phase renovation in an occupied building.
  • The building’s shell was comprised of multiple-additions and differing construction types.
  • The existing water line was leaking under building.
  • Critical utilities such as fire protection system, fiber optic data lines, and data switch were active in the construction zone.


  • Employed precise scheduling, utilized well constructed isolation barriers, and created temporary swing space by the use of temporary trailers.
  • Worked closely with the team to adapt the new construction to the differing substrates. Added decorative gypsum wall board soffits in multiple areas to enclose building additions, transitions, and utilities.
  • Installed a new water line, while maintaining service to existing, occupied areas.
  • Identified critical utilities, erected protection barriers, displayed signage, and informed the team of live areas.


  • Created a curved feature wall that boasted a translucent panel with etched tree branches.
  • Self performed demolition, concrete, rough and finish carpentry, millwork, doors, frames and hardware, and installation of all specialties.
