Gilbane’s expertise in fast-track multi-phased renovations ensured meeting Deutsche’s Bank move-in dates
The Deutsche Bank 90,000 SF multi-phased fit-out converted core and shell office space into additional office space for the software programming department. Completed in six different phases the scope of work included modifications and upgrades to the building’s systems and finishes, core spaces including bathrooms and pantries, as well as furniture installation/ coordination. Working with both Deutsche Bank and Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), Gilbane implemented various best practices to ensure key milestone dates were achieved.
Interactive Planning Sessions: Partnering together, Gilbane was able to lead various Interactive Planning Sessions (IPS) throughout schedule development. This collaborative scheduling approach allowed buy-in from all team members and produced a schedule that the entire team was able to utilize throughout all six phases. Integrating Gilbane, JLL and Deutsche Bank allowed team buy-in to mutual commitments. In order to achieve/develop the critical path milestones, mutual understanding of concerns and interdependencies among team members, clear identification of the complex phasing, best resource allocation, and how to sequence the phases.
“All team members have dealt with challenges nicely. All around team effort. “
