PROJECT CHALLENGES

OUTCOME

Project success was contingent on maintaining clear and concise lines of communication between all project team members, the landlord and the various internal MMAH client groups. Several micro schedules were established to communicate the various dependencies to all stakeholders.

This was a highly detail oriented project that required finite coordination between all disciplines. Flat Iron ensured that all trades and prime consultant understood the specifications and participated jointly in resolving any relocation challenges.
