With 120 locations worldwide, Teradata’s San Diego location was to be the new face of Teradata and establish a new office look for the company.
Cushman & Wakefield had to complete an extensive tenant improvement project for Teradata, covering two buildings and over 60,000 square feet in 14 weeks or less. Recognizing that the standard process of acquiring lighting products often results in budget problems, multiple rounds of value engineering during the construction phase, and project delays, San Diego CW Project Management Team needed to find a better solution.
To address the challenges they knew they would face with lighting, Cushman & Wakefield immediately added Monterey Lighting Solutions to the design team, alongside Gensler Design and Turner Construction. Construction and supply work would work together in a coordinated and efficient manner from day one in order to reduce costs, avoid delays and mitigate potential problems.
