Fort Douglas PX Building Remodel
UNIVERSITY OF UTAH
Owner: University of Utah / DFCM
Architect: EDA Architects
Duration: February 2013 – May 2013
Project Value: $2,200,000
Project Delivery Method: Value Based CM/GC
The Fort Douglas PX Building is an historic 12,100 sf, 2 story originally built in 1903. The Military Science program at the University of Utah had been housed in Carlson Hall for the past several years, but this building was scheduled to be demolished in order to make space for the new Law Building. Gramoll Construction was brought on board for this project in January, 2013 while the design was still in Programming phase.
Gramoll Construction was able to capitalize on the CM/GC Process to complete the construction of this project in just 3 1/2 months. Bid packages were created to maximize lead times for Historic Window replacement, Elevator procurement, and Mechanical and Electrical equipment packages. Demolition and Structural upgrades began mid February 2013, one week before Design Development documents were completed, and Substantial Completion was received May 28, 2013.
The final project is one that all key players; the Designers, Owners, Users and Gramoll Construction are proud to have been a part of such a successful, unique, and challenging project.
