This 140,000 sf four-level core and shell office building features tilt-up concrete structural wall shell, structural steel interior structure, slab-on-metal-deck floors and electrical busway system.


  • The electrical busway system allows for easier expansion and future fit-out.
  • Messer was selected by a tenant to complete three floors of the building fit-out. Through successful coordination, we were able to start the fit-out while construction of the core and shell was still in progress.
  • Utilizing flow scheduling enabled the team to be more efficient when constructing repetitive scope such as bathrooms.
