Exterior Curtain Wall Design & Repair
Construction Management Services
Vistara served as the Construction Manager for this Design-Build project that is included a major renovation of the curtain wall from a safety, security and preservation standpoint. The major scope includes repairs to the original curtainwall system, replacement of deteriorated glass-to-metal and metal-to-metal building joint seals, repair and replacement of damaged curtainwall components and applying Blast Resistant film to all windows.

E.M. Dirksen

• The Building was occupied throughout construction. A rapid response was prepared for each and every complaint received from the tenants and the construction schedule re-adjusted to mitigate noise and fumes away from the floor in question.

• Vistara worked with the Design Builder and GSA to negotiate a price within budget when the initial bids came in over 15% over the budget.

• Preparation of a Tenant Bulletin with simple explanations of upcoming work.
