McCormick Construction Announces Completion of a 221,000 SF Industrial Business Park
By: McCormick Construction
"The industrial market has remained hot over the past few years, which can be attributed, in large part, to the growth of e-commerce,"
McCormick's scope of work included the tilt-up construction of the five buildings – each including mezzanines, office spaces, restrooms and coffee bar areas. McCormick was also responsible for site-wide infrastructure improvements, including electrical, domestic water, storm water and sewer monitoring systems. In addition, the project team was able to meet CalGreen requirements, reducing negative environmental impacts and encouraging sustainable construction practices to improve public health and safety.
McCormick worked closely with the owner, design team and subcontractors throughout the project to mitigate any potential complications and additional costs. Ultimately, McCormick was able to deliver a savings of nearly $1.5 million through value engineering, aggressive buyout and skillful management of allowances and change orders to the prime contract. During the grading phase of the project, the owner opted to upgrade the standard fire suppression system within each building to early suppression fast response (ESFR) fire suppression piping in order to attract a broader range of potential buyers/tenants. This change could have resulted in months of delays and extensive redesign costs. Instead, McCormick worked with with GAA Architects and the design-build subcontractor to minimize added costs and eliminate the need to incorporate costly fire pumps.
"McCormick's expertise in constructing industrial facilities benefited the project overall by providing essential insight that allowed the team to complete Galena Business Park on-time and within-budget,"
The McCormick project management team included Don Shipley, operations manager; Mohamed Felo, project manager; Greg Badgett, general superintendent and Stephen Chadwich, superintendent.
In addition to Galena Business Park, McCormick's recent projects include Nickelodeon Animation Studio, a new five-story, 110,000 square foot production building in Burbank; Element LA, a 12-acre, 300,000-square-
