While it takes strong managerial skills to run any
new construction project, from ordering supplies to
coordinating time frames with subcontractors, it really
takes years of experience to be able to take on multi-million
dollar retail renovation projects. At Larrison Construction
Inc., we look forward to these projects and take pride
when they meet and exceed expectations.
As in every renovation project, the challenges normally
go beyond bringing the architects’ vision to
reality. Ridgmar Mall in Fort Worth, Texas is a good
example. Its unique challenge was to keep the mall
operational during construction. Of course, the retail
tenants wanted to stay open for business through the
duration of the construction, while the owner wanted
an entirely new contemporary look with major interior
foundation work for a future third level theater complex.
We realized that the project would be continuously
evolving and that we had to establish a partnership
between us, the owner, the architect and each tenant
with everyone working together to find on-the-job
creative solutions. Because we were able to form a
complete partnership, this project went very smoothly,
meeting expectations while keeping costs under control.
