Description

This project included preconstruction services and a variety of activities for the renovation including demo back existing to bare structure, replacing all roofing, complete fit out of interior spaces and much more.

Features

  • The renovated library will include a historical archive area, technology labs, two-story reading room and touch screen lighting control user interface.

  • Messer 5S is a key component of our Zero Injury culture utilized on the project. By eliminating slips, trips and falls from poor housekeeping, we can achieve more consistent safety results on all of our projects.​​

  • Messer's professional Craftforce can self-perform work on this project providing additional expertise for safety, quality and more.

  • Quality Leadership System (QLS) best practices helps take the “what ifs” out of the project and drive accountability.
  • Flow Scheduling lean technique categorizes the project into similarly-sized areas, determines the best sequence and sets a rhythm to completing those areas. This allows for a faster, quality completion of the project with earlier in-place mock-ups and a safer work environment.
  • Prefabrication utilized on the project means items are constructed in a controlled environment free from exposure to weather, are tested in the warehouse (off-site construction) then retested once they are installed, ensuring every piece and part fits perfectly.
