Best Buy

The construction of this 52,100 square foot big box retail space, on the third floor of a new retail center, was completed ahead of schedule, enabling Best Buy to advance their opening by one month.

The 24' ceiling height and large structural trusses challenged the mechanical, electrical and sprinkler coordination. An additional twenty percent of sprinkler heads were required to provide adequate coverage above the large intake and distribution ductwork. Mechanical mezzanines were hung from the slab above to support each of the three 50 ton water cooled air conditioning units, without compromising the floor space in the stock room below.

Requested changes were expeditiously incorporated into the store fixturing program.
