The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences
Los Angeles, California, USA.
Role + Responsibility:
Modern Operations (Rich Cherry) was brought in mid-project to help make adjustments to the construction project and define and ramp up the operational plan for the museum. One of our first tasks was to evaluate the existing general contractor, schedules, and budgets. Based on our recommendations, a new general contractor was selected for Phase II. A change to the exhibit designer was also implemented.
Working closely with an existing Owner's rep team, we supported the Owner in overseeing the planning, design, and construction – including all coordination with the architecture firms, general contractor, subcontractors, and other stakeholders.
