Gateway interviewed with 3 other general contractors for the MOZ Tenant Improvement project and was awarded the project based on our comprehensive & competitive estimating skills, as well as the ability to demonstrate our understanding of the design and building infrastructure.
The construction schedule was speculated to be a 120 day schedule from start to substantial completion. Gateway was mobilized and working on various nights and weekends to complete the work. The multi floor TI consists of connecting the 4th floor to the 5th floor with a new connecting stair system, and encompasses a total of 51,000sf of construction area. Major upgrades to MEP and electrical panel relocations are necessary to supply the new tenant’s requirements.
The stair connection required a new hole cut in the building slab to accommodate the new system, as well as significant structural upgrades to the building infrastructure. A raised platform will be installed on the 4th floor to support the stainless steel risers, stringers, channels & tread supports. The steel flat-bar handrail will be installed with the stainless steel suspension cable rail system. The treads were charred after installation
