MCL Construction provided Construction Management and general contracting services for Buildertrend in Omaha, Nebraska.
Our team was engaged with the software developer early in the design process as it started the planning and design of a new headquarters location. The MCL preconstruction team provided budgets and value analysis at each stage of design. Our early involvement with Buildertrend and the design team allowed us to look at the project from a much broader view and adequately schedule construction activities, identify long lead items, and analyze potential challenges in the existing building.
Construction consisted of demolition of the existing space that was occupied by a higher education institution. Buildertrend utilizes an open work concept; there is only one office for human resources. There is new carpet and paint throughout the building. There are mechanical and electrical upgrades all through the 107,000 square foot facility and improvements to the fire sprinkler system. Our team was able to salvage and reuse many parts of the existing space that adapted to the new layout and design.
The featured space is the enormous break room that features a custom bar, large video boards, and games. The exterior patio features a fire pit for added gathering space and team-building. An exercise and workout room was added to the building with two locker rooms.
Construction started in February of 2017 and Buildertrend occupied the facility in June of the same year.
