Details

This project was an office tenant improvement for a new corporate building which JTB International purchased (2 stories, 26,000 SF).
We completed this project in four months, as requested by the client, from design, plan check, to construction. We also helped the client move from its downtown Los Angeles office to the new office in Torrance, a distance of some 20 miles. Even with such a short time to complete this project, we minimized obstacles to the client’s daily business.
The project team including the client, subcontractors, and we cooperated and completed the project on time.

Challenges

1. Managing Schedule
Permit was granted from the city on May 17th, 2004, and we started construction the next day. In order to meet a two-month schedule, we worked double shifts every day and weekend to finish this project.
Also, company workers managed and cleaned up the site in order to create a better work environment for subcontractors.

2. Inspection
In this short period of time, we received correction requests from City of Torrance inspectors, and it was challenging to keep up with the original schedule; however, we used our network fully and efficiently to comply with the inspectors’ requests quickly and flexibly, so that we managed to complete project on time and without accident.
