The innovative design of the Visitors Center maximizes natural daylight, energy-efficient MEP systems and is built from sustainable construction materials. To overcome a challenging budget and schedule, McCownGordon’s preconstruction services and partnership approach allowed the City to see this project to fruition.
Working closely with the City, design team and major trade partners in the preconstruction phase, the team evaluated an extensive list of value engineering options and creative cost saving ideas. Team collaboration was crucial to the preconstruction success. The project took place next to the active arboretum, therefore, maintaining site safety and cleanliness was of the utmost priority.
