Mint Projects, the general contractor in charge of the design and construction for The Bike Shop building, required a champion engineering team to work with on the design-build project. A team that could retrofit a building, working within the confines of the current structure to bring to life a beautiful and spacious bike shop. The vision was glorious! Getting everything to function properly was tedious. The contractor, owner and Enginectra worked together closely to complete the project.
Mint Projects hired Enginectra for The Bike Shop project to implement a value engineering approach by recommending cost-effective solutions without sacrificing functionality. Collaboration across the teams was imperative, a willingness to troubleshoot problems and open communication kept the project running smoothly, like a well lubricated bike chain. The design-build method allowed for one entity, one contract, and one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion. With this approach, Enginectra and Mint Projects were able to deliver faster and on budget building. In fact, the M&E designs were submitted in half the time. If this project was a bike race, the entire team deserved a gold medal.
