The majority of the 900,000-SF interior renovation project involved the build-out of floors 10 through 39 as office space and level 40 as a multifunction meeting and reception area, complete with a free-form oculus pointing to one of the round openings in the roof. Trading floors were connected with the executive offices. Also included in the work was the build-out of level one and basement medical areas, building management offices, and print shops. With a high-rise construction project comes the obvious need for construction and trade coordination. One of the most difficult tasks on this project was the coordination of vertical transportation. The difficulty was compounded when ChevronTexaco brought more and more players into the game: telephone installers, computer installers, furniture system providers/deliverers/movers, and finally, the population of floors by employees. Through careful coordination, Bellows kept the entire project harmoniously integrated and completed it on schedule.
