Week 2 of work on the interior renovation project for the NC Retail Merchants Association is about complete. This substantial project in downtown Raleigh, NC is making some headway, roughly 2/3 the way through demolition.
Interior walls are coming down. Three executive offices that occupied a substantial 2-story space are about to removed to create a much more usable space. The concrete slab on grade has been cut and excavated for new footings.
Next week, demolition is scheduled to be complete. Footings will be poured for the structural steel that will support the 1600 sq. ft. infilling of the 2nd floor.
Construction is slated to be complete by June 30th. Because of the accelerated schedule, the design-build process made the most sense to NCRMA. Gontram Architecture and Ten Penny Construction have once again teamed up for this unique Design-Build opportunity. As a single-source delivery method, we control budget and schedule, taking a lot of the usual Owner-associated worry out of the project.
