Comments on the Platform 4611 mixed-use complex

McHugh senior project manager Jeanne oversaw Platform 4611’s construction. “We were thrown a couple of curve balls because the building was started during the height of the pandemic. However, our team presented creative solutions throughout the project that saved time and added value.” According to Bartels, extremely precise coordination between the structural engineer, the architect, and the subcontractors was necessary to take into account the variety of materials required to support and construct a brick wall.

“A lot of thought was given to the design and construction details, including an off-site mockup of the wall before the project even began,” she stated. The execution went easily, and the architect’s design is beautiful, so all that planning paid off. McHugh was able to complete this project on time and within budget. The company employed existing foundations to proactively cut costs and procure materials and appliances during the pandemic-induced supply chain issues through our extensive network of suppliers.
