Technical Assignments
Technical Assignment I

Tech I illustrates the existing conditions of the Thames St. Wharf Office Building site, the construction management techniques of the Armada Hoffler construction team and some insights into the reasons behind Harbor Point Development pursuing this project.   Contractual obligations between the owner, design firms, CM firm and the subcontractors are also presented.  Additionally a historical data estimate as well as a square foot estimate are included in this report and are compared to the actual construction cost.  To view Tech I please click on the image to the right.


Tech II analyzes the key construction management aspects of The Thames St. Wharf
Office Building.  Included in this report is a detailed project schedule, a site plan for each phase of
construction, a detailed structural estimate and a general conditions estimate.   The detailed structural
estimate is compared to the actual construction costs of the project.  A review of some critical industries
that were discussed at the 2009 Pace Roundtable is also included in this report. To view Tech II please
