Construction cost and delivery schedule are typically key factors in commercial construction. An integrated design-build approach to building systems can be used to achieve early cost certainty, lower delivery cost and faster construction.
Amgen Next Generation Office
Delivery Method: Integrated Project Delivery, Design-Build
Limbach engineers were embedded on-site for this Integrated Project Delivery Design/Build project. This renovation, at Amgen's corporate campus, was executed in multiple phases, encompassing approximately 500,000 square feet spread over 3 buildings, as a key component of Amgen's Masterplan modernization project. Design occurred simultaneous with construction. Unyielding completion dates were met. The design goal met LEED Gold certification requirements.
Location: Mid Atlantic
Delivery Method: Design Build
Giant Germany based discount grocer Lidl decided to make a push in the U.S. market in 2015 by acquiring a majority of the nine story National Gateway I building in Arlington, VA to be their new U.S. based headquarters. In mid 2016 Limbach Mid-Atlantic won the design build contract for phase II of the tenant fit-out work which included build out of the 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th floors and some miscellaneous work on the lower levels which were built out as part of the phase I construction. LEDS was brought on to be the mechanical & plumbing designer of record and worked closely with the owner to fit-out the top floors and fixes to the lower levels of their
headquarters. The project provided some unique challenges in that LEDS was working directly with the owner and Limbach performed construction activities in an occupied and operational office building. The project achieved LEED gold certification.
