- State Building Commission Approval (Complete)
State Building Commission approval is required for all easements for State entities.
- Space Allocations (Programming)
This includes meeting with user groups and identifying spaces needed along with:
- the size of spaces
- number of persons occupying each space
- adjacencies required
- needs for the space (HVAC, lighting, electrical, plumbing, sound attenuation, etc.)
- types of functions performed in each space
- equipment needs
- furniture needs
Typically segmented into four phases of work including program verification, schematic design, design development and construction documentation. Each phase fine tunes floor layouts, structural elements, interior finishes, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and communications/data systems. With the completion of each phase, the budget is reviewed and tweaked as necessary. Furniture, fixtures and equipment design and selection also are reviewed during this time.
At this point, the contractor begins physical work on the space, transforming it to the requirements laid out in the construction documents.
- Furniture Installation
Once construction has reached the finishing stages, furniture can be loaded into each space and installation can begin.
- Employee Tours
Employees will be able to tour the space at intervals prior to move-in.
