Lafayette West Apartments Exterior Rainscreen Facade

NSC was brought in early on this project to assist with GMP budgeting, value engineering and and redesigning the rainscreen system to provide the look and function required by the design team, all while maintaining a budget that worked for the owner.  Working under a design assist contract; NSC, the owner, construction manager and architect came together to accomplish all these goals.  Complete shop drawings were done to coordinate all teh rainscreen VE changes into a working document.  This eliminated the need for the architectural drawings to be completely redone and elaying the project.
