At the height of busy tax season, this major accounting firm needed to stay fully occupied and functional throughout the multi-million dollar renovation. In order to accomplish this, pre-construction and construction were completed in three phases, with strategic employee relocation, to minimize disruption to Edelstein staff. One phase involved a 7,000 SF expansion, including an employee café with custom barn doors, while the other two phases included two major renovations to existing spaces. Since Edelstein is a full-floor tenant, the base building elevator lobby and corridor became an integrated part of the renovation.
Unique Project Features:
Temporary relocation of Edelstein & Company staff allowed the firm to maintain normal business operations during all three, strategically planned phases of construction.
Although the project was completed in three phases, the office ultimately looked as if it underwent a single phase construction renovation due to the incredible synergy between the Edelstein & Company, the architect, the engineer and Corderman & Company team.
Previously used office furnishings were preserved and donated to The Furniture Trust to redistribute to non-profits and community schools. In total, 65,485 pounds of material were donated to 11 different local non-profits.
