Brown Brothers Harriman & Co.

Fourteen weeks. That’s how quickly financial services firm Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. needed to fit out and move into its new office in an existing high-rise in Jersey City, New Jersey. With a lot of communication and strategic planning, our team worked through a speedy preconstruction process to make sure the firm’s 550 employees moved into their new home on time.

Brown Brothers Harriman has a robust software development team with some intense IT infrastructure needs. To fast-track the 95,000sf, multi-floor project with facilities that meet those standards, we strategized to prepurchase the lighting package, computer room air conditioning (CRAC) units, FP boxes, structural steel and the UPS so that both move-in and commissioning could proceed quickly. Introducing new points of entry and carriers, along with generator upgrades, also helped provide re­dundant IT and main frame rooms.

Prepurchasing wasn’t limited to IT infrastructure alone. Procuring the structur­al steel ahead of time also allowed the monument stairs to be prefabricated and the finish metals and glazing to be purchased, after heavy co­ordination, from CAD drawings. As these materials and finishings arrived, the project team developed a precise phasing plan in which multi­ple trades worked on multiple shifts to help the team work as efficiently as possible in the given time constraints.

In addition to multiple pantries, our team also installed a 6,000sf “grab-and-go” and servery area. An internal staircase was built over the grab-n-go, which required heavy coordination with many trades for the MEPS at the servery and structural design of the stairs. The project also included upgrading the existing restrooms and installing new restrooms and wellness suites.

Although the client did not choose to pursue LEED certification, we constructed the project following USGBC sustainability guidelines, including installing several thousand square feet of reclaimed wood planking.
