Working on a Tight Jobsite in a Busy Area

Building on less than two acres in the center of Lawrenceville, our team worked closely with the city and downtown neighbors to develop and communicate a strategic logistics plan. Because of limited space for materials, we utilized a just-in-time delivery approach to keep the jobsite organized and efficient. When erection of the precast concrete structure required on-site assembly of a 400-ton crane, the team staged crane assist vehicles along the interstate, calling on them individually to avoid gridlock in the city.

Utilizing Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) Tools to Ensure a Flawless Production

When structural steel erection was close to beginning, the LPAC project team and our VDC | Design department met with our sub partners to coordinate steel erection inside the precast structure of the new main theater.

Their people have been positive, creative and collaborative with the whole project team from day one. This has been truly important, as the project brought many challenges – building a massive theater addition on a tiny site in the middle of downtown Lawrenceville…Every challenge that has come up has been handled with care by our entire Carroll Daniel team.
