Building a new Atlanta headquarters for the manufacturer of popular children's clothing brands Carter's and OshKosh B'gosh required fitting 11 stories of tenant space into an otherwise occupied 20-story tower.
Driven by a tight schedule, the project team had to build out and finish 275,000 sq ft on 11 floors of Atlanta's Phipps Tower in only 20 weeks. The vacant office space required minimal demolition work, but the architect's plan called for complex finishes, including extensive hardwood flooring. To accomplish the architect's design, the general contractor, early in the process, brought aboard the millwork subcontractor, which used single-sourced walnut flooring to ensure a uniform look. Judges were impressed with the final results.
