The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has picked downtown-based architecture and engineering firm Gresham Smith and Partners — as well as peers from Dallas, Orlando and Columbus — to provide some interior design services over the next five years. The collective value of the contract with all four companies, which were chosen from 18 applicants, is $9 million.
Segments of a tower crane are now on the North Gulch site at which construction is underway on the building that eventually will accommodate HCA divisions Sarah Cannon and Parallon.
The 16-story structure will stand more than 250 feet, with no buildings of major height located near it. This means the tower crane will strike a dramatically vertical pose on the site.
In general, the erection of tower cranes mean large-scale projects are ready to go vertical, thus creating visibility and added excitement.
Skanska is serving as general contractor for the project, with Gresham Smith & Partners handling design work (read more here).
