The Haverford College – Library Renovation project was a challenging project from the very beginning all the way to the end. As this project involved the selective demolition of former historic buildings and building additions, in order to construct a robust structure in the center of the existing footprint, while maintaining the existing exterior walls with temporary shoring as the new structure was installed. These former buildings that we worked around dated back to 1864, 1898, 1912, and 1967. All of which had their own nuisances in order to marry the new construction to the existing. Throughout this project your team never gave up and always put forth their best effort towards the project in order to see this project through completion. This involved accepting changes along the way as we learned more about the existing conditions we were to work with, utilizing Pull Planning for the scheduling of activities, and coordinating with other subcontractors throughout the project.
