This light-industrial tenant finish was the reformation of an old taxi-car maintanence facility. As the project manager, I was responsible for management of the site during construction, following a tight schedule on a strict budget, hiring and supervising subcontractors, retrieving permits from the city, walking through city inspectors, researching building materials, designing construction documents, and installing inventive structures. Our largest design move was the 3,000 sq. ft mezzanine built entirely from reclaimed maple box car floor, reclaimed steel pallet racking, and hockey rink glass from the rebuild of the Pepsi Center. I took this project from concept to completion, finding the perfect balance between the needs of both the architect and the client.
A second concept of our was to create six large exterior windows from 13,000 recycled plastic bottles. This posed a very labor intensive process, which I was responsible to organize. It included collecting 13,000 bottles from a local recycling plant, cleaning, de-labeling, and cutting them to size. Then we installed them between two sheets of recycled plastic. The small cylindrical capsules they created allowed for an insulate barrier between the interior and exterior, but allowed for natural light to fill the workspace.
