Strategy & Services: stok was brought in as Project Manager to help deliver renowned Bessemer Venture Partners’ (BVP) new Silicon Valley office space. Navigating through the rapid simultaneous base building construction, stok orchestrated the Tenant Improvement team with a quick MEP design-build approach to deliver a space reflective of the pioneering venture capitalists: an optimized investment.
Project Details: As a collaborative and synchronized group, the Tenant Improvement team’s greatest challenge was the external coordination with the base building team. Through close relationships with other project teams in the building, stok was able to monitor the progress of the other tenant improvements in the building to keep the team ahead of general building challenges and schedule delays. The entire design and construction team was very adaptive throughout the project, as changes out of their control, including base building drawing alterations, elevator shutdowns, and shifting life safety design, jeopardized the project schedule.
Navigating through the rapid simultaneous base building construction, stok orchestrated the Tenant Improvement team with a quick MEP design-build approach to deliver a space reflective of the pioneering venture capitalists: an optimized investment.
Outcome: Despite numerous challenges including incomplete base building details and base work construction, stok seamlessly synchronized the team to deliver the space within the project timeline. The project team’s collaborative approach proved to be a big success, with each member contributing their own strengths to bring the owner’s vision to life. Embodying BVP namesake Henry Bessemer’s pioneering invention, elements of the space were designed to be suggestive of steel, featuring components that deliver function and a layout that allows all employees access to ample natural light. BVP is thrilled with their new space, where they will continue to invest in passionate and innovative thinkers to help bring disruptive ideas to market.
