DESCRIPTION: Icon West, Inc. has recently completed our administrative and modernization Project, Hilgard, located at UCLA. The project consisted of the construction of a three story and a four story type-VA administrative and office buildings on two sites, 720 Hilgard Avenue and 824 Hilgard Avenue, for a total of 83 studio units including a type-1A subterranean parking garage. The scope of work included: Egress Modernization, Seismic Retrofit, Shoring, Demolition, Excavation, Grading and construction of Retaining Walls; Post-Tension Slab, Domestic Water, Fire System Water, Sewer, Gas, Electrical and Telecommunication, Paving, Landscaping, Irrigation, Site Drainage and Lighting, Fire Sprinklers and Fire Alarm System. Our team worked closely with the architect and the sub-contractors to bring this project in on-time and on-budget. The project came to a complete halt for 2 months, but our team worked closely with the architect and the sub-contractors to bring this project in on-time and on-budget. For example, during the course of construction we encountered a shortage of adequate routing space for the electrical, data and fire alarm systems. Our team was able to make limited structural modifications as well as modify the existing panel loads. As a result, Icon West was able to eliminate construction delays and costly change orders. The project was completed on-time and budget.
