This unique project site, located in a sparsely populated area with limited utilities, required the building to be designed with a 500-year lifespan.
Taking on the challenge, Marx|Okubo started with a review of design development and construction documents, and moved into owner’s representation by facilitating monthly OAC design coordination meetings; tracking the master budget and schedule; coordinating commissioning work with the design team; and proposing strategies for exceeding seismic code requirements and natural disaster preparation, as well as reducing operating expenses.
