    Project Description:Achieving the ‘impossible’ - The construction cost of theOffice &Wine Distribution Building was accomplished at $93 per squarefoot.   Armed with an understanding of our client’s budget and project objectives, and a clear vision and purpose, the project design team worked synergistically to overcome many challenging design and construction obstacles.  During the design process, we worked directly with suppliers and contractors, utilizing value engineering feedback to align the design solution towards achievement of our vision.  The building was a successful integration of a unique sculptural form and custom architectural detailing,  accomplished within a modest construction budget.  During the construction phase, we represented our client, skillfully negotiating quality solutions while aligning budgets with the contractor. The substantial cost savings for our client resulted in referse funds used for quality finishes and start-up operation costs.  The building was designed to allow for maximum flexibility, including a 6,374 s.f. second floor areas, designed to house a single, or multiple tenant configuration (office or medical).
