Challenge: Struggling to manage the project schedule time line, budget, subcontractor coordination and existing concealed site condition issues, BMA challenged Peak Construction to investigate, research and propose a plan to minimize further project costs and time implications currently being experienced. Timing, costs and concealed conditions could have been major factors in delaying the completion of this building.
Solution: The Peak Team used their Project Management skills and proven execution programs and procedures to successfully complete the final two months of general contracting for the Phase One project scope. The building was delivered for occupancy in February of 2005. The construction included 65 assisted living units, corresponding public areas and a three-wing, two-story wood frame structure. Peak was selected to provide the general contracting for Phase Two, which consisted of a fourth two-story wing providing an additional elevator and 21 additional rooms. The general contracting services required special attention to noise, access and field coordination of several concealed site conditions which were the result of previously abandoned access tunnels and manholes, including old live utility lines that were not identified with easements or on the existing as-built documents.
