Construction in a building built in 1927 takes special skills and expertise. Metcon was part of a team that resurrected a legendary building. Seismic retrofits in an occupied, historical high rise can be disruptive and destructive. This repositioning project tested our abilities in problem solving, team work and outside the box thinking. The project included tenant improvements in a historical building, reconstruction of occupied spaces post seismic retrofitting, common area improvements, building utility upgrades, exterior renovations, abating of hazardous materials, bringing in HVAC systems, and parking garage work.
