Communication is the key to any large project’s success. From the outset, Mason & Main benefited from regular stakeholder meetings occurring at every level, at which schedules, budget, and safety were reviewed, issues were identified, and creative solutions were hammered out. Over time, the job of responding to each new external challenge started to become a collective, group effort. Every team member started to think outside the box.
As supply chain issues threatened to bog down the schedule, we worked with our subcontractors to resequence the construction. Most buildings are finished top-to-bottom; our teams started in the middle floors and worked around the building, nimbly performing work wherever it was possible.
A Success by Any Measure
The resulting development gave Compass a few important milestones. At nine stories, Mason & Main is the tallest project in the company’s history. It was also the largest to date in financial terms with both buildings coming in at $127.3 million. Both phases were LEED Gold-Certified. And overall, the project came in on time and under budget.
But it’s what the buildings represent that’s most meaningful: that when we commit to a plan, we stick to it, even in the face of a pandemic and market volatility. Thanks to detail-obsessed planning, healthy teamwork, and innovative thinking, this is the promise we make to every client, big and small.
