Take That to the Bank

Tyler 2 Construction helped “The Curious Bank” successfully complete an interior renovation of a high-rise office tower in center city Charlotte, N.C. prior to being awarded the 36,000 sf roof renovation for the building. The project needed to be completed on time and without breaking the, well, bank.

The challenge: 

Removing and re-installing concrete pavers, waterproofing, and reroofing various levels of a 31-story office tower in the heart of center city Charlotte is one thing. Doing it while the building is occupied in the middle of winter is another, but Fifth Third was banking on us. This project had to be completed without interrupting day-to-day tenant operations. We also had to constantly and vigilantly protect building equipment, finishes, and – above all – occupants. Limited material storing and staging area, hoisting provisions, and waste removal presented other challenges.

We began by developing a phased approach to tackle our work in occupied areas. To get the job done with a minimum of disruption to tenants, our crews worked night shifts.

The end result:

Each day, we erected – and dismantled – building finishes protection and returned tenant furniture to its original location at the end of each shift. To prevent possible weather damage to existing finishes, the phased schedule called for sections of roofing to be removed and replaced each day, so no area was left open to water infiltration during construction.

Tyler 2 also phased the outdoor elevated concrete paver/waterproofing scope of work to allow building occupants to use the outdoor break area safely during construction. We displayed safety signage throughout the construction area and coordinated street and sidewalk closings with city officials.

Frequent communication and Tyler 2’s s weekly “look-ahead” kept the project team apprised of work progress and eliminated any guesswork.  

No one wants guess work from their bank. Or their construction company.
