For several years, DCBA acted as the Owner’s Representative for Unum Group for the construction of their LEED Silver certified Worcester, MA, office building. The new $70-million, seven-story, 180,000 sq. ft. office building and attached 800-car parking garage is only a portion of the larger improvement being made to Worcester’s City Square, a 2.1 million sq. ft., mixed-use development on 20.2 acres with an estimated project value of $563 million—making it the largest public/private development in Massachusetts history outside of Boston. DCBA met with state and city agencies to secure permissions for infrastructure and road upgrades as well as demolition and improvements to the parking garage. Our team also oversaw the coordination of the developer, two architectural design teams, vendors, contracts, and leases and provided scheduling, logistics, requisition reviews, as well as constructability and value engineering feedback. The DCBA management team conducted project meetings and handled budget, quality, and change order management.
