The NC Retail Merchants Association project in downtown Raleigh, NC is coming down the homestretch.

Crews are working furiously to obtain above ceiling inspections this week and Monday so we can button up the ceilings on the 2nd floor.  1st floor is due to be signed off later next week.

After some material shortages and a slow start, wood trim work (including base, door and window frames) has picked up steam and is proceeding at a pretty good pace.  This work should be complete early next week.  That will allow final painting and floor finishes to commence later next week.

Light fixtures are also being installed.  The permanent lighting is beginning to help show off the new space!

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.

Trim work and door installation underway.
