Contract Dates: July 2017 – January 2018

Location of Work: Tucson, AZ
Scope of Work: This project was a very unique and carefully coordinated tenant improvement. It was a complete and total renovation of a historic commercial adjoining building in the historic downtown 4th Avenue district. The renovation was approximately 3,896 SF, which included a new 2nd Floor within the existing facility. This project was a transformation of an existing retail building into a New Youth Facility and Business Office.
The scope of work included a large open community hall with a new performance stage, rehabilitation of two historic adobe walls, secure entry reception area, complete front entry facade, ADA improvements throughout, two unisex restrooms, ten offices (five downstairs and five upstairs), large conference room, full kitchen, laundry room, storages throughout, copy/work room, large multi-purpose room, new rear exterior patio area, all new mechanical systems, complete plumbing systems and upgrades to existing old sewer lines, electrical upgrades throughout, fire protection throughout, new foam roof system and security systems throughout.
The project was very successful and publicly advertised with many participating local public officials, several large leading business owners and, both, private and public organizations. Project was completed on time and within a limited budget. Completing construction on-time was extremely important in pre-planning for a highly anticipated open house with attendees from all parts of the world. So, it was very important and demanded a completed project to accommodate those traveling for the celebration event. We are very proud to have been part of such a great and highly publicized project!
