Barneys New York Interior Build-Out
This project portrays contractor collaboration at its finest, as two contractors were constructing different components of the project. Extensive collaboration began early during pre-construction, where major components were identified and planned for in order to eliminate surprises. The grand staircase created a unique challenge for the contractor given its design complexity, specific details required by the owner and architect, and the structural requirements. The staircase itself weighed more than 15 tons and was constructed of massive steel pieces, with the interior guard rail comprised of very large glass panels. Barneys New York took the lead in revitalizing the old Robinsons-May wing, drawing in 18 additional new retailers and restaurants, in the midst of unprecedented tough economic times in the country.

Rockefeller Group Distribution Center
Rockefeller Group Distribution Center obtained LEED Silver certification and provides a definitive standard for the design, construction and operation of a green building. It is the first LEED-certified, Class A, 100% concrete spec industrial/distribution center ever developed in Southern Arizona. One major feature of the building’s green design is its 40% performance water use reduction.
Towne Air Freight signed a lease at the property in October 2009, and will consolidate its two existing Tucson locations into 17,711 SF. The facility will provide this particular client a venue to store TSA-certified imported goods until they are inspected and cleared by customs.
