To add a new 30,000 square foot second floor to an existing building in an of itself is very challenging.  To expand footing, add screw piles and reinforce structural steel columns through a completely finished existing basement and first floor areas certainly adds to that challenge.  Now mix in maintaining a water tight roof over 150 people utilizing this building during construction, along with fire exits and OSHA safety guidelines.  This is what you have along with a beautiful new window wall and granite exterior for this outstanding remodeled and expanded facility.
