Confidential Fortune 500 Company Turning a Tight Deadline Into a Headline

Marietta, Georgia, USA

The Challenge

Our confidential client had an immovable completion date that mandated a condensed time frame and various fast-tracking elements. The site sits next to the Chattahoochee National Forest, requiring an environmentally sensitive design and proper permitting.

The Design Solution

HKS designers implemented several fast-track techniques to meet the client’s schedule. We obtained a land disturbance permit in a two-month period and delivered end of schematic design. We issued an early foundation package and our construction manager provided real-time pricing and real-time input that included monitoring and taking advantage of market changes throughout the project.

The Design Impact

The final delivery was on-time, under budget and included a pre-cast parking garage.
