The project consisted of final design, construction and occupancy of a 150,000 square foot manufacturing and assembly facility for Gulfstream in Mexicali, Mexico. Key components of the project included a new central plant for heating and cooling systems, a new fire water tank for the fire sprinkler system, and new main electrical and water feeds to this expansion of their existing facility.
Hughes Marino Construction Management (CM) was able to act as the owner’s representative to ensure that the quality of work met the standards established by the client and their global requirements in a foreign country. Monthly reports and photos were sent to corporate headquarters to ensure that senior management was well aware of the project progress as well as potential issues that might impact Gulfstream’s ability to occupy the new expansion space used to produce their new product line.
Hughes Marino CM acted as the owner’s representative, managing the developer through the final design and construction process for both the shell and the tenant improvements. Scope of services included verifying that the design characteristics of the building met the client’s requirements, certifying the tenant improvements were constructed within the TI allowance provided by the landlord, and ensuring the project remained on schedule. Schedule was critical as the client needed to occupy the new expansion space in order to begin production on their new product line by a specific deadline. Hughes Marino CM also coordinated with the client’s global risk management department to ensure the fire suppression systems and other safety components were designed and installed to meet the client’s global requirements.
