PROJECT: Bank of Montreal
PROJECT LOCATION: 3 Times Square, 26th to 29th Floors
New York, NYPROJECT SIZE: 100,000 sq. ft.TYPE OF BUILDING: CommercialCONSTRUCTION VALUE: $24,000,000ARCHITECT: The Hillier Group
Cauldwell Wingate was engaged as the Construction Manager for this project. Its role involved a comprehensive pre-con exercise, which included numerous budgetary and value engineering rounds. The project team successfully completed contract documents meeting the budget expectations of the Bank. The project was most memorable because of the complication of an aggressive tenant build-out construction schedule in a newly constructed building where core and shell work was not yet completed. The impact on the project was that the tenant and core work labor shared access through lobbies, hoists and freight elevators. In addition, the landlord’s labor was still engaged on the floors while the tenant work was going on. The success of the project was measured by the strict adherence to the schedule despite these impediments.
