McCownGordon has been working hand-in-hand with SFS and the Owner to review an extensive list of cost options while staying on course with the preconstruction timeline. In order to maximize the budget, the McCownGordon | SFS team is collaborating with consultants, expert matter vendors and trade partners to propose solutions and plan ahead for any potential challenges that may arise such as mitigating the current market conditions.
After touring and evaluating other stations, collaborating with MEP Designers and utilizing our in-house Building Performance Solutions group, our team has offered three options for the MEP systems in this station. Our close collaboration and extensive early involvement with budget input will allow the team to make the right choice and allow the design to progress as planned. Serving the Central District, the station will be located in a residential area near a school. Consequently, the McCownGordon team is working closely with the Owner to maximize the safety of the neighboring residents.
