Touchstone CPM teamed up with Armcorp Construction for this addition & renovation project to relocate office space and expand a waiting area. By enclosing an existing 3rd floor balcony that was rarely used, the VA was able to relocate seven (7) offices. This balcony addition has traditional steel framing and tied into the original structure. It was then enclosed with thermally insulated metal panels which mirror the exterior facade of the two (2) year old building, making the addition look like it was always there. The resulting space was finished out per normal office standards. The waiting area incorporated like materials to match the existing space.
The project was performed with ZERO lost time accidents. Additional time was granted to complete the project as the result of owner decisions affecting the work at the beginning of the project. This required work to occur during winter months and not in the fall as originally bid. The revised schedule was completed on time and under budget. Extensive daily efforts were made to work around the center's daily operations with patients and staff. Some work was scheduled at night and on weekends to accelerate the project and also minimize noise impacts to adjacent spaces.
