This resulted in the build-out of 100 upscale offices, executive suite, state-of-the-art conference room, custom-designed video editing suites, kitchens, staff lounge and a large open collaborative workspace.
- As construction manager at risk, TW collaborated with the owner and architect during the design phase and then took full responsibility for coordination, financial goals and execution of the construction phase.
Why Therrien Waddell?

- An aggressive schedule demanded fast tracking, and TW successfully managed the sequence of activities and used creative approaches to accelerate construction methods beyond traditional contracting practices.
