Pinkard worked the painting subcontractor’s scope into the overall construction schedule and managed the work for the owner, including holding the subcontractor accountable for the schedule. During floor-cover demolition, Pinkard provided a creative fix for an unforeseen floor-height discrepancy that threatened the owner’s budget and schedule Both projects finished on time and within the budget, which included owner-initiated change orders for unforeseen conditions, code requirements, and owner scope additions.
The Schlessman YMCA expansion featured interior upgrades to a YMCA that is nearing the end of its functional adequacy. Slated for demolition in the not-too-distant future, YMCA elected to incorporate minimal remodels to the reception area including new floor coverings, along with select demising wall demolitions to open-up certain spaces and allow for expanded adaptability for key programs in this YMCA.
