Two key projects reach completion milestones

Two of our key projects recently reached completion milestones: Florida Polytechnic University’s $60 million Innovation, Science and Technology Building – designed by renowned architect Santiago Calatrava – and the $163 million San Carlos Center medical clinic near San Francisco, our first true integrated project delivery undertaking.

“I can’t begin to express or put into words the absolute feeling of accomplishment after four years of pursuit, presentation, the win, the preconstruction, the GMP, the execution and delivery of all the different elements of this Calatrava design,” said Chuck Jablon, the vice president in charge of the IST project, which achieved substantial completion. “This team had to make the design come true and work as it was intended to work, and they achieved that, working without a lost-time accident, on schedule, within budget and with the highest of quality in all aspects of the project – and we will outperform on the fee!”

In the Bay Area, the San Carlos Center team nailed their much-awaited date for achieving temporary certificate of occupancy, successfully completing our second project for Sutter Health, a major California healthcare system. Project Manager Sean Blonquist said the team – especially the project engineers – put aside titles and normal responsibilities to do whatever needed to be done to ensure the project would pass the final inspection.
