METROPOLIS LA

Construction Manager..

It’s common knowledge that fast-tracked construction comes with scheduling and logistical risks, even for a single-building project. For the $1-billion Metropolis mixed-use development in Los Angeles—with four towers and a podium on a 6.3-acre site, three overlapping construction phases and two different building teams—successful fast-tracking also depends on intense cross-team coordination.

“The project is so large, we wanted to minimize the risk, so we selected two general contractors instead of one,” says John Wong, project executive for AECOM/Tishman, project manager for the entire 4.1-million-sq-ft development.
