Washington Wabash CTA Station, Infrastructure Finalist
The votes are in and the Washington Wabash CTA Station was one of the finalists for the 2017 Project of the Year Award! What an amazing milestone for everyone that worked together on this project. CCS looks forward to the winning announcement to be held at the awards ceremony on May 22. This new CTA Station serves the Brown, Green, Orange, Pink, and Purple lines and has become a gateway for Millennium Park and the Loop, as well as transforming the public’s perception and expectation of public transportation in Chicago.
Program VerificationProgram verification, a process that uses Parametric Cost Model™* to continually predict current and future costs as the facility progresses, can help owners set a realistic and, more importantly, real-time Construction Cost Limitation (CCL), the maximum amount that will be paid for a construction project as contracted between the owner and architect. When conducted at the outset of project definition, a program verification can help ensure that the project remains within the CCL with few or no necessary adjustments to project scope.
The University of North Carolina at Charlotte
The University of North Carolina at Charlotte soon begins one of their most innovative projects to date, the new Science Building. CCS International, Inc. is excited to participate in this project and to be part of the Clark Nexsen team. The new 120,000-150,000 GSF, four (4) story Science Building will replace the Facilities Operations and Parking Services. The new facility will integrate undergraduate instructional laboratories, research laboratories, faculty and administrative offices, graduate student workspace and collaboration space into a unified center for learning and research. This $70M construction budget project, is set to begin September 2018 and scheduled for completion in November 2020. Facilities Operations and Parking Services will be combined into one building and moved to another campus location. As a national leader involved in similar science facilities such as the University of North Carolina - Bell Tower Development, CCS believes this project will push UNC to the forefront of educational leadership by providing this start-of-the-art facility for students and faculty alike.
