6/4/2009, Quincy, MA — J. Calnan & Associates, one of New England’s leading construction management firms specializing in pre-construction services and challenging construction projects, recently completed the first phase of construction for L1 Identity Solutions’ Secure Credentialing Division in Billerica, MA. Working collaboratively with Visnick & Caulfield Architects, WB Engineers, Diversified Project Management and many of our subcontractor partners, the project team was able to deliver the first phase of the 90,000 square foot fast track project and move L1 Secure Credentialing into their expanded space over the weekend.
Phase 1 of the project included the fit-out of 60,000 square feet of additional space to L1’s current facilities at 296 Concord Road. The additional space includes new corporate office areas; state-of-the-art computer labs; factory space with a production area; a large data center and conferencing/meeting rooms.. Some of the challenges included transferring the current data center to the new data center with uninterrupted service to a fully functioning office environment. The project team kept the data center alive throughout the duration of the project. Another interesting challenge was that JC&A had to turn the first phase over faster than the time it typically takes to procure materials all while creating minimal disruptions to the neighboring tenants. “Leveraging nearly fourteen years of solid subcontractor and vendor relationships, we were able to work with our partners to fast-track material deliveries and work off-hours to maintain the tight schedule and minimize disruptions,” said Project Executive, Stephen Robak. “We look forward to delivering the next 30,000 square feet next month for this world-class client.”
The project team is currently underway with Phase 2 of the project.
