When T-Mobile set out to establish a Birmingham Customer Service Center, they enlisted the help of Robins & Morton to oversee the project completion. The projectrequired a complete demolition of the interior systems as well as a complete window and roofing overhaul for better efficiency. The facility also required the addition of 250 parking spaces to accommodate more than 600 employees.
With only five months from beginning to completion, scheduling was the biggest challenge for the Robins & Morton team from the beginning. To keep the project on schedule, Robins & Morton maintained constant communication with trade contractors through daily meetings to ensure everyone was working based on the most current modifications. Along with scheduling challenges, the team also overcame several drawing modifications throughout construction, managing the needed electrical and phone requirements, as well as implementing several innovative processes and procedures to ensure exceptional quality.
In just five short months, Robins & Morton transformed the former Southern Living Media Services Building into a sleek, modern 67,000-square-foot, two-floor office space for the call center. Robins & Morton substantially completed the original scope, plus more than $800,000 of additional work, ahead of schedule.
