Case Study #1
A client hired The FGX Group, LLC to manage a fit-out for space in an existing medical office building.
During the design phase, the mechanical engineer proposed a certain number of heat pumps for the space. It was determined by The FGX Group, LLC that three (3) of the pumps could be eliminated due to proposed utilization. As a result, there was a savings of approximately $10k in equipment, material, and construction costs.
This savings single handedly paid for the Owner’s Representation fee, and construction hadn’t even started.
Case Study #2
A client hired The FGX Group, LLC after their architect had completed the construction documents for office space in an existing building. The general contractor was also on board, and ready to begin demolition. They had been requesting information on office furniture already purchased from the client. The FGX Group quickly coordinated the furniture vendor, general contractor, and the balance of the required firms.
It was determined existing electrical/data floor boxes and wall outlets within the suite needed to be coordinated with new conference room furniture. After research The FGX Group found the new furniture would not work with the existing power layouts, and new furniture had to be quickly procured.
The FGX Group was able to obtain new furniture that complimented the space, met the client’s expectations, and did not go over budget. The issue was found early enough in the process where the previously ordered furniture could be returned at no charge to the client.
Case Study #3
A client hired The FGX Group, LLC to oversee a building addition and renovations to an existing mixed-use structure, as well as improvements to the exterior grounds. The client was concerned about overall project costs and the length of time to get through the land development process. Quite frankly, they were concerned the entire planning / approval process would be too overwhelming for them to manage internally.
After meeting with the client and the local township prior to any management work beginning, The FGX Group, LLC developed a phased construction approach which coincided with the client’s desired timelines while maintaining the budget.
The client will be able to move into their new facility on time, while approvals from the local township, state agencies, and environmental agencies will be facilitated.
Case Study #4
A client due to several logistical concerns was forced to move approximately 100 employees into a 16,000sf space within a limited timeframe. After formal project approval, The FGX Group, LLC was tasked with ensuring the space would be ready for the client in three (3) months.
That is, the ENTIRE project needed to be completed in three (3) months which included full design, construction, commissioning, and move-in.
The FGX Group, LLC was required to hire the architect/engineers, the general contractor, a furniture vendor, an audio visual firm, a low voltage contracting firm, a signage vendor, an IT consultant, and a moving company.
The FGX Group, LLC developed a streamline plan to hire the general contractor and furniture vendor during design in order to begin procurement of all long lead items. This along with consistent communication with all of the project team members during the project’s duration ensured everyone was focused on meeting the client’s expectations.
The project was completed on time and under budget.
