Cornerstone provided preliminary budgets based on schematic drawings to Cushman & Wakefield for the Scott Madden project. Leasing terms and agreements were executed, and Cornerstone was selected to final price the construction documents. Mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) engineering was included with the final construction documents to submit for permitting. A preconstruction schedule was developed that considered time for permit review and approval, construction duration, and inspection delays.
Cornerstone was able to deliver the project two weeks ahead of schedule even though the client made changes throughout the project and there was a long lead time for ordering and installing the modular wall system. Delivery of materials into the job site was expedited by removing a windowpane and flying in materials through the temporary opening. Demolition was minimal due to the existing space being white-boxed. Notable project features included a modular folding wall system and a custom-designed, prefabricated metal panel. A new common corridor was constructed to provide multiple points of entry and finished to match the existing common corridors throughout the building. The floor plan included six open area collaboration rooms and enclosed office spaces with full-height sidelights to promote an open feel and visual security.
