HISTORIC BUILDING RENOVATION

CONSTRUCTION MANAGER FOR RENOVATION OF HISTORIC BUILDING

Federal mandates to reduce unnecessary real estate inventory combined with the desire to preserve this historic landmark drove the relocation of the Social Security offices to this site. This $1.3M design-build preservation and interior remodeled project had to accommodate the needs of both the Agency and the public while maintaining the historic flavor of the 1930’s building. Both tenant and Agency Owner were apprehensive of the Design-Build contracting approach, which caused an initially tense project team and minimal trust at the outset. Other tenant Agencies and Historic Preservation Office involvement increased project complexity. The Adapt team operated as the GSA representative on site for construction compliance and quality assurance.

GSA relied on observations and recommendations provided to determine the appropriate course of action for project modifications and pay schedules. Adapt maintained a consistent and helpful relationship with both the design-build, owner and user teams to maintain the project schedule and decision making process.
