rand* managed the simultaneous construction schedules of the six-story Federal Trade Commission headquarters as well as for the National Endowment of the Arts and Humanities offices on the lower five levels, making this effort one requiring intricate coordination and a great deal of collaboration among all team members. The aggressive schedule required workers on site virtually every day for two months and strategic, critical thinking about trade sequencing and management of high security on site. The field team also had to adapt to multiple changes in scope to ensure the Owner’s goals were met. The scope of work included ten levels of tenant build-out including office space, employee break rooms, pantries, corridors and conference rooms as well as a data center on Level P1. A high density filing area was created on the Plaza level. The project team utilized extensive BIM rendering throughout preconstruction to identify issues with structural modifications, such as the chilled beam HVAC system, the extensive installation of carbon fiber and sound masking equipment, and the raised access flooring. Ultimately it was communication among the entire team and the project team’s impeccable coordination of all work that made the project a timely and organized success.
