Symmetry Builders, Inc. was involved early in the design phase in a CM/GC design-assist capacity. Symmetry was able to understand the overall project and work with the entire design team to develop a design within the project budget. This effort helped eliminate any construction coordination or construction detail related changes throughout the project.
This project included funding from the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) which required the team to comply with their requirements (scope, budget, etc.) while developing a design on a very difficult site and location. The end product is a very functional and attractive fire station meeting the owner’s expectations and all funding requirements.
