The tenant improvements at Paul Hastings at La Jolla Commons involved more than simply renovating an office interior. The project team needed to provide a tenant improvement that met the owners’ demand for Class A office space.
The project consisted of re-construction and tenant improvement services for approximately 70,000 sq ft of office space on the 11th, 12th and partial first floors of a 13-story building. The additions to the building were a technology/electronics server room, library/file rooms, small training room, mail room, small kitchens and multiple conference rooms at the first, 11th and 12th floors.
The project team worked closely with the subcontractors at the start of the project so the framing layout for the higher end finishes could be laid out precisely.
It was critical to the project schedule that these long lead materials were ordered early, and that the ceiling and wall framing work started.
In addition, the project team had numerous meetings with the electrical subcontractor regarding fixture requirements for the various ceiling types. The team took a proactive role in providing value design solutions and requests for information as well as meeting with the architect weekly, so that construction would not be delayed and the subcontractors could complete their work on schedule.
