This remodel was phased to allow us to work while the building was occupied. We renovated offices, adding sliding glass doors and walls as well as mechanical upgrades in phases one and two, allowing employees to move into the new offices and make room for the next phases of work. Phase three involved the expansion of the studio’s data center to 2,000 SF. Due to exemplary planning by the superintendent, we met every taget date the client gave us, and stayed within the client’s budget.
KXAN’s 50 year-old building is actually one wood-framed structure and one steel-framed structure, structurally joined in the 1980s. This added complexity to the project, in that we had to rebuild structural walls as part of the remodel.
