Here we have a first glimpse at an interior space of this building! 

Ceiling grid and lights have been installed through out, power has been turned on, and AC is kicking and running (at a very low temperature, if I may add).  Air conditioning the space and drying t...

After struggling with flooding a couple of times (perhaps 3 or 4) due to an inefficient drainage design, we finally had the mulch, that once was added on before construction as a mechanism to help maintain the tree's health, removed so the tree roots could dry out...

For most clients, field hanging conflicts leading to a 6" ceiling drop is generally accepted. Not for this building (or client)! HVAC installation was halted today for what was once understood as a 4"-6" ceiling drop, now turned into a 10"-12" drop in ceiling height. S...
