Cyma Builders & Construction Managers was selected as Quest Diagnostic’s strategic construction partner to assist with the relocation of their corporate billing operations from an existing leased facility to a new location to support the organizations growth. The project involved renovation of a three (3) story office building to accommodate Quest’s programmatic needs. The project was constructed on a fast track basis, with overall completion requirements within twelve (12) weeks of start of construction, and partial occupancy beginning within eight (8) weeks of start of construction. In order to accommodate the nature of the schedule and the phased occupancy needs, Cyma developed strategic project execution plans during pre-construction to ensure the flow of work would be critical path concentrated, that partial occupancy acceptance by the township was feasible, and that early building occupants were isolated from construction areas until final construction completion.
The 3rd and 2nd floors were renovated to accommodate high density of open office workstations, with existing MEP distribution modified accordingly and finishes upgraded. A full service cafeteria was constructed on the 1st floor, including a kitchen, serving, and dining area, which required implementation of supporting HVAC infrastructure. A new employee entrance, security station, credit union, human resource offices, training facility, and mail sorting room were also constructed on the 1st floor.
