For the most recent Papa John’s designed and built by Ron Kwaske, Architect, opening day came one remarkable week ahead of schedule. That’s an extra week of business for our clients. In addition to that, by completing the project before April 1 we were able to save our clients over six figures in incentives! That’s a lot of dough – pun intended.
Seriously, this was a highly challenged project that required an incredible amount of supervision and coordination. The site was located within a mid-rise building that completely lacked mechanical infrastructure. Plumbing, gas, and suitable ventilation were all necessary, and, a retrofit in an existing mid rise building is no easy task with the closest tie-in locations often located in excess of 3 floors above.
We had an incredibly aggressive deadline of one month start to finish. The crews we brought to this project were professionals and followed the imperative set by our office that this project needed to be completed ahead of schedule. They worked on a tight deadline in tight quarters. With proper coordination, supervision, and a schedule updated on a daily basis, the work was completed efficiently and effectively. Weekends were sacrificed, but craftsmanship and service were never compromised.
Our attention to detail and professional service does not stop with the drawings. While we are proud to be their Architect; in this case we were also the Owner’s representative, adviser, and construction manager.
We help our clients to achieve their goals, which, in the case of a business, is to be profitable. They can only start moving towards that goal if their business is operational, which we helped them do – one week ahead of schedule.
