Description

BACKGROUND:
A growing organization was looking to relocate to a Class A building in downtown Manhattan. PLAN was able to assist in site selection and full scope of services through construction. One month prior to completion, the Client’s growth projections increased and they ended up taking more space directly adjacent. We made the original design work with the new space seamlessly.

HIGHLIGHTS:
4,450 SF (Phase 1); 1,150 SF (Phase 2); Graphics / signage design and implementation

CHALLENGES:
The largest challenge was keeping all parties informed, while educating the Client on the construction process and what to expect.

LESSONS LEARNED:
Once again, the success of this project was achieved through relationships. We were able to keep the same GC for Phase 2 and the whole team benefited from heading off any issues originally raised in the 1st Phase. We were able to help FES with additional offices in Boston and Connecticut.
