Santa Clara New Central Library ($45 million)

In support of the Construction Manager, the Tiburon Group provided Design and Construction phase Project Controls and Schedule Management.  This was a multi-phase project to replace the existing City Library with a new and expanded facility.  The project involved construction of a 35,000 sq.-ft Temporary Library, demolition of the existing building, and construction of a new 80,000 sq.-ft high tech Library Building. Beyond the normal Library functions, the facilities included 4 public meeting rooms, and a café.

Construction of the New Central Library was to be on the existing site.  With this, it was necessary to provide temporary space.  To minimize the cost of this space a Phasing Plan and Project Delivery System was developed to "Fast Track" the project.  This effort saved the City nearly eight months of construction and several millions of dollars in temporary library rent.
