Deutsche Bank Renovations and Tenant Improvements

Gilbane completed multiple phased renovations and interior buildouts in multiple office buildings.

Multiple phased renovations and interior buildout on occupied office campuses

Gilbane provided construction management at-risk services for the phased build-out of Deutsche Bank’s trading department and mission critical facility, including renovations at Building 200, Building 300-400, Butler Buildings II & III, Building Management System Replacement, the Global Technology Command Center, and 5201 Gate Parkway. Work proceeded within this active corporate office with a focus on after hours work on nights and weekends to avoid disruption.

Building 200: The mission critical facility scope of work included installation of new UPS circuits and data to 60 new desks and re-feeding all critical trader desks with new data and power. A new data room was built with new redundant cooling units. The scope of work also included interior demolition, several mechanical unit additions, multiple critical HVAC unit additions with redundant controls, light fixture installation, interior finish installation and multiple interior storefront and door systems.

Building 300-400 Amenities Upgrade: Upgrades to two existing buildings on the Meridian campus in Jacksonville, FL. The main components of this amenities upgrade scope included installation of infrastructure and finishes for a full-size kitchen, event space, servery, dining areas and outdoor patio to accommodate the surrounding buildings. Work was performed in close proximity to neighboring investing buildings for the duration of this two-phase project.

Butler Building II:  Interior demolition and construction in several areas throughout three floors, specifically all 20,000 SF on the third floor and about 10,000 SF on the second floor. Work entailed painting, cleaning carpets, 60 KvA UPS installation, mechanical unit installation, data center re-build, data room additions, interior finishes, acoustical modifications and casework and kitchen additions.

Butler Building III:  Work was performed throughout all four floors with the installation of a new UPS system and installation of two refurbished 8-ton CRAC 8 Units that were installed on the first floor to serve the MTR room which received new low voltage cabling and racks. The project scope included interior demolition and construction in several areas throughout all four floors, re-wiring desk, painting, UPS installation, mechanical unit installation, appliance and water line installation, data center demolition and re-build, interior finishes and casework additions.

BMS Replacement:  Installation of a building control and automation system to connect to all mechanical equipment throughout 4 buildings. The project allowed for the mechanical system to be controlled from one office rather than having to visit each space to adjust set points.

Global Technology Command Center:  Interior fit-out of an existing office space into the Deutsche Bank Global Technology Command Center. The project consisted of focused demolition and reconstruction work in the 14,000 SF space while the existing space was segregated by a 6-inch sound defining partition wall which allowed for daytime work and cost savings. We worked through the entire building during different phases included carpet replacement, multiple complete kitchen renovations, bathroom renovations as well as providing new lighting, ceilings, interior walls, level five finishing and cabinetry.

5201 Gate Parkway:  Gilbane provided preconstruction and construction phase services to renovate approximately 150,000 SF in a newly acquired building. The new space allowed Deutsche Bank to decommission spaces in two other existing buildings in Jacksonville and consolidate their operations into the new location. The new space also provided Deutsche Bank with an opportunity for future growth. The project included a phased delivery where phase I included preconstruction services as well as an initial enabling effort to provide security segregation with the existing tenant. Phase II included the renovation and fit-out to the third floor. After the existing tenant relocated, phase III included renovation and fit-out of the remaining two floors.

Client Value

The team performed multiple electrical shut-downs which were required to install new UPS circuits, electrical modification as well as the installation of new mechanical equipment to the new stand-alone data rooms. We coordinated and worked directly with the building owner to minimize disturbances and downtime during unit shutdowns.

Work was completed in approximately 60% of the building through various stages of the project. The work performed in active environments was done during off hours to minimize disturbances.
