The EVO//Center is a 50,000 SF corporate training facility for Japanese manufacturer YANMAR. It features a product showroom/museum, a 300-person auditorium, a state-of-the-art training academy, private meeting and event space, outdoor common areas, a product demonstration field, and more.
Preconstruction Collaboration with the Whole Team
The initial estimated cost based on the design documents was $18M. Carroll Daniel’s project management team worked extensively with the architect and YANMAR to price alternates and come up with creative ways to enhance the budget. For example, our plan to balance the site saved YANMAR $500,000. In the end, we helped reduce the final budget by about 20 percent, with no impact to the final design or quality of the EVO//Center.
We Finish Strong
Despite the project’s extremely fast-tracked 10 month schedule, we are proud to say that the YANMAR EVO//Center’s punch list was minimal and was completed in just one week – record time!
