Brown Hall Renovation at Colorado School of Mines

This fast-tracked project was identified by the client just weeks before work was expected to begin over the university's summer term. Our team was challenged with a six-week design schedule in order to bid the project prior to summer break. Further complicating circumstances, a portion of the project was to be funded through donations, some of which had not been guaranteed. Based on this, the total project funding was unknown. To deal with funding concerns, the team developed a three phase approach, providing the School of Mines with flexibility for both schedule and budget.

The project included remodeling of the Mining Department’s office suite, including conference facility, kitchenette, offices, and work room. The program also included a new 40-station computer lab, graduate computer work room, graduate offices, new ventilation lab, and modernization of an existing wet lab. Exterior windows were added in the graduate offices and wet lab. The project phasing was developed to accommodate opening of the computer lab as stipulated in a donation to the University. Phasing by alternates helped to ensure a Base Bid within the stipulated budget. The Scope of Work includes complete modernization of finishes, electrical, and mechanical in all areas receiving work. Our team also selected, specified, and assisted in the procurement of all FF&E.
