Front Office & Lobby Renovations
Work consisted of modifying the existing reception area in the main office building located on the Tucson Game and Fish Campus. The goal of the renovation was to provide additional waiting space, organization and security for the Game and Fish employees and their customers. The display and storage areas needed to maintain existing working space as currently used while upgrading the appearance and functionality. The project required several preliminary designs and continuous updates throughout the construction process to accommodate the needs of the facility. Complete design and engineering of electrical, HVAC, structural and architectural layout was designed by teaming with a key subcontracted design firm.
