11/25/2009, 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 a challenging project for L1 Identity Solutions’ Secure Credentialing Division in Billerica, MA. Working collaboratively with Visnick & Caulfield Architects, WB Engineers and Diversified Project Management, the project team was able to deliver the 90,000 square foot fast track project and move L1 Secure Credentialing into their expanded space.
The project included the fit-out of 60,000 square feet of additional space to L1’s current facilities at 296 Concord Road as well as renovations to their existing 30,000 square feet. The additional space includes new corporate office areas; five state-of-the-art computer server rooms with 8 large Computer Room Air Conditioning Units; factory space for license fabrication with a production area; five design labs; a large data center and conferencing/meeting rooms. Some of the challenges included relocating a 15 ton CRAC unit out of a third floor window so that it could be re-positioned in the new data center on the first floor. This was all accomplished without interrupting a fully functioning office environment including both L1 Identity Solutions as well as multiple adjacent tenants. The team was also able to keep the data center live throughout the duration of the project. “Leveraging nearly fourteen years of solid subcontractor and vendor relationships, we were able to collaborate with our partners to work off-hours to maintain the tight schedule and minimize disruptions to the neighboring tenants,” said Project Executive, Stephen Robak. “We look forward to continuing to build upon our existing relationship with this world-class client.”
