When Trip Advisor realized they needed almost 900 additional parking spaces added to their campus in Needham, Massachusetts they turned to Lee Kennedy Construction of Quincy, Massachusetts and Dailey Precast for a solution.
The Construction schedule was very aggressive, giving Dailey just 50 days to install nearly 800 pieces of precast to an existing parking garage. Fabrication and erection tolerances were extremely important to match up the two structures; both old and new. Another challenge was matching the color and texture of the exterior precast in the existing garage.
To match the existing garage, Dailey Precast sent a team consisting of plant management, detailers, finishing crew and quality control to the jobsite to understand the expectations and standards we needed to meet. Dailey also took over 20 pictures with various small samples we produced to get the correct mix of color and texture. Our dedicated and experienced team was able to precisely match the aesthetics of the new structure to the old structure.
Chris Netzer, Dailey Precast Superintendent working diligently with Prime Steel of Billerica, Massachusetts, our erector, was able to not only meet the schedule but beat it by completing erection in only 38 days!
