- Main lobby/reception

- Project rooms for consultants (10-15 person capacity)
- Main computer room and data center
- New generator and BMS
- Security room
- Company store
- File rooms
- Nurse practitioner’s room
During the preconstruction phase, Structure Tone collaborated with the Allergan and Design team on value engineering, developed a project phasing strategy, and created a master project schedule. Further, we also conducted a constructability assessment and determined site logistics. Frequent meetings with both the client and selected subcontractors identified any possible issues or steps that need to be considered. In the construction phase, to meet the aggressive schedule demands, the team worked to facilitate expedited submittal reviews of all critical components. Leveraging the buildings unique repetitive pod/wing layout, the team developed a modular shop drawing approval method for all MEP trades in order to accelerate fabrication schedules to maintain installation progress. This LEED certified headquarters was completed on time and under budget.
