Urban Glass |
Levien was hired to provide construction project management services on this renovation which included an expanded gallery, new retail and office spaces. The goal of the renovation was to allow Urban Glass to have a street level presence where artists can present, create and sell their work. Levien also assisted in the fit-out of the upstairs offices and glass blowing studios. As part of the pre-construction process, Levien provided budgeting and scheduling services in addition to procuring a Construction Manager. Value engineering was required to meet the client’s strict budget, and Levien helped develop a scope of work that fulfilled the project goals and met the budget simultaneously. The construction timeline allotted only a few months to fit out the raw space in order to open on time for a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Mayor. Levien drove the team to complete the space on schedule, a feat which also required coordination with the base building construction manager. Levien also provided assistance to Urban Glass on meeting city funding requirements.
