Hunter Roberts completed Construction Management services for Reed Smith LLP,  a high profile global law firm.  The project, at 599 Lexington Avenue, involved the build-out of 102,000 SF of space and included a high-end conference center on floor 22 and general office and partner offices on floors 26 through 30.

This project had some unique project elements and innovations which can be seen in the uniquely woven millwork details and the graphic polyester panels in the space.

Working closely with the architect, we established “hold dimensions” for all finishes. Because virtually every visible surface is millwork, glass or stainless steel, there was very little margin for error, in most cases 1/16 of an inch of tolerance at most. Quality was achieved by constant site walk-throughs in concert with a zero defect policy.  Pre-purchase was essential to the success of this project.

Due to the tight schedule on this project, intense coordination and constant vigilance regarding safety was paramount.
