Project Description

Beaver Constructors, Inc. was selected as the Design Build Contractor for United Architectural Metals’ 50,000 square foot addition. Having worked with United Architectural Metals in the past with a similar project delivery, and knowing we had to plan, design, and construct the project to meet very specific goals, constraints and demands, the design build delivery method was ideal for this manufacturing/office expansion. With the architect/engineer as part of our team, we were able to coordinate design and construction elements with the owner to develop the most cost and time efficient construction delivery for this project.

Critical to the project schedule was the timeline set by the owner to move out of a leased facility and into the newly constructed facility.  The project was completed in eight months through a difficult fall, winter, and spring which saw some of the heaviest rainfall on record.  During the construction, the owner added a large interior office build-out and restrooms, as well as over 60,000 sf of exterior concrete.  Despite the weather and the owner design adjustments, Beaver was still able to complete the project two weeks ahead of schedule.  A key factor to maintaining the schedule was the design-build team’s coordination, and our ability to self-perform so many critical scopes of the project.  Beaver Constructors self-performed foundations, concrete, masonry, and the rough and finish carpentry and teamed with its sister company, Beaver Excavating, who performed the site and building demolition, underground utilities, and earthwork.
