In Mark Frerich's words

All contractors build buildings with similar materials, similar methods, and similar systems but it’s the people that separate contractors into companies we want to work with/for and the companies we don’t.”

Data Center in Michigan.  A 12 month $92MM project that was a 361,000sf expansion of an existing data center which included 68,000sf of raised access flooring and a redundant power supply.  To meet the schedule 68,000sf was scaffolded to allow electrical/low voltage to be installed above while the hydronic system and raised access floor pedestals were installed below simultaneously.  The sheer size and speed of the project and the complex mechanical and electrical systems was captivating.
