BASF’s Research and Design Building, built in the 1950s, was renovated by Aristeo Construction to modernize the space while also rectifying the intrusion of water and cold air in the building.
Aristeo Construction managed the interior renovation of BASF’s Research and Design building, including a complete window and induction replacement and renovations to the restrooms, conference rooms, basement mechanical room and lobby. With 12,000 manhours, Aristeo successfully completed this project while managing construction in an active facility and near sensitive pieces of equipment.
As an experienced general contractor, Aristeo separated the scope, spanning the full footprint of the building, into 12 different phases. Majority of the work scope was replacing existing exterior windows. Aristeo provided options to the customer to allow them to choose the best-suited option for their schedule and budget. We also provided schedule acceleration options and pulled the work ahead to complete the project prior to the original proposed completion date.
In addition to managing a 3,500 square foot interior renovation, Aristeo oversaw the replacement of windows and HVAC; carpentry, glazing and site restoration services; and completed asbestos and lead abatement.
This project took place in an active office building, which meant only certain areas were accessible during select timeframes. To solve for this, the team phased out the project and followed specific guidelines while working in the office/lab space, such as installing barriers. Additionally, the building was constructed in the 1950s, so the team removed hazardous materials, such as asbestos and lead, that were commonly used during that time.
