Bilzin Sumberg Attorneys at Law
Bilzin Sumberg, a Florida-based law firm with a national presence and a high profile in the Southeast region, needed a new headquarters building that would project a savvy, professional image to its growing roster of corporate clients in the upscale Brickell Avenue area of Miami.
Build a distinctly recognizable new headquarters within tight time and budgetary constraints. Our goal was to obtain occupancy approval from the City of Miami within a four-month period, allowing the client to avoid significant lease penalties at its existing headquarters while transitioning and relocating 250 employees.
The end result, delivered on schedule and within budget, went beyond the client's expectations, serving as the landmark facility envisioned. Plaza was able to incorporate multiple owner-generated design changes during the construction process without adding time to the original schedule and managing substitution costs to prevent cost over runs that may have otherwise accumulated. As with most aggressive interior build-out schedules, the project's sequencing and coordination were critical. Our staff developed and maintained the schedule on a daily basis, keeping constantly abreast of any slippage in manufacturing or delivery, which allowed us to change course when necessary and provide for sequencing changes with agility, while maintaining the critical milestone for project completion.
