Going up? No Worries

What happens when a project hits the roof? That’s what Carlisle & Gallagher Consulting Group wanted to know when it was ready to expand its space …up. This project in an occupied, multi-story historic office building in Uptown Charlotte called for a dramatic high ceiling—in space that had already hit its limits.

The challenge:

Tyler 2 wasn’t willing to let little things like concrete beams, sprinkler mains and existing windows keep them from coming out on top in this project for Carlisle & Gallagher Consulting Group.  A centerpiece of this demolition and build-out plan by Wash Hatem Nelson Architects was the high, dramatic ceiling in the main lobby and reception area, a design that didn’t match the realities of construction. Achieving the look and feel everyone wanted would mean overcoming the restrictions of the existing ceiling deck height.

The end result:

Tyler 2 doesn’t let a little thing like ceilings keep us down. We worked closely with the architect during pre-planning and negotiated with the building owner, subcontractors and our client to redesign the above-ceiling roughs. Before construction began, we created a soffit around the lobby to house all the duct work and pipes that didn’t fit the clean, spacious look everyone envisioned. In the end, we kept costs to a minimum and topped off this elegant 8,690 sf space with an open, light-filled lobby with a dramatic ceiling design.

Did anybody hit the ceiling? Nope. Client, architect and building owner are over the top happy.
