DCBA provided preconstruction and construction services for Steffian Bradley Architects’ new 20,000 sq. ft. office. The project’s proximity to Logan International Airport, Black Falcon Cruise and Shipping Terminals, and a United States Coast Guard base produced unique building and communication challenges that involved DCBA, the owner, and the Department of Homeland Security. Services DCBA performed included weekly scope review meetings to discuss SBA’s requirements, constructability review of project documents, schedule, and cost studies; field investigations and verifications; and integration of necessary HVAC, plumbing, electrical, and fire protection requirements into the design build scope. During the time frame leading up to construction, DCBA performed subcontractor procurement due diligence and scheduled meetings with various building facilities to incorporate the building’s rules into construction procedures. Construction work included creating a new layout and installing new flooring, ceilings, paint, custom millwork, and furniture.
