SCOPE OF SERVICES
To help this client meet its objectives, Marelich Mechanical provided high-performance mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems on a design/build basis. The project was completed within budget and on schedule.
Using building information modeling (BIM), Marelich worked collaboratively with the owner, architect, general contractor, and all other team members to provide this client with an optimized building systems solution. Early in the project’s development, the team used BIM to address logistical challenges. The BIM model then became an invaluable tool for both the construction process and component fabrication. It was also used by all stakeholders to communicate construction sequencing and methods.

The tower, which stands 630 feet tall, includes the podium, landscaped deck, spa, and swimming and reflecting pools with four levels of below grade of valet parking.
