Project Description
This project will renovate an existing generic office space into a new physician practice location for the College of Medicine. This project will provide extensive modifications across all trade disciplines including but not limited to: carpentry to revise the floor plan and add new rooms, corridors, ceiling systems and flooring; plumbing and sanitary waste piping for new sinks and restrooms; sprinkler system modifications and life safety upgrades; mechanical work to replace existing aging rooftop equipment and install a new duct distribution system throughout the floor; and electrical work to provide power, low voltage data, security, and communications systems, and lighting throughout.

Contractors will be required to coordinate specific work items with the retail space located on the first floor and perform any disruptive work that requires long-term access to their space outside of their business hours.
