Downtown San Diego Partnership finalized the complete overhaul of its existing ground floor suite in Downtown San Diego. The organization’s new headquarters renovated the old office space, adding contemporary open ceilings, glass office fronts, a lounge area, and a massive conference room with bi-folding doors. A large circular pendant light fixture is suspended over the lounge area, which is furnished with comfortable, colorful furniture; an adjacent break room provides bar seating for employees.
Hughes Marino’s project management team was able to complete the design, permitting, bidding, construction and occupancy in record time so the client could vacate the temporary swing space before hold-over fees were incurred. Additionally, throughout construction, the project management team was able to value engineer roughly $100,000 of hard construction costs throughout the design and construction phase.
Hughes Marino project managers worked alongside the real estate brokers to ensure the budget and schedule goals were met. In addition to real estate support, the project managers negotiated contracts, performed value engineering exercises and collaborated with the client’s staff to ensure the project would be completed on time and under budget.
