Case Study

The Bryant Lobby

The Bryant is a beautiful upscale condo building in the Back Bay. During the original construction of the building, the lobby was left unfinished to allow the developer to play something really special. Working with renowned designer Klaus Fuchs, the owners of the building contacted Construction Coordinators, Inc. (CCI) to perform renovations including work on both the interior and exterior of the building.

The floor design of the lobby, however, posed unique challenges. Each piece needed to be cut out of stone by water-jet, and then placed by hand into an intricate pattern on the floor. The assembly was time-consuming, but fortunately the end result was beautiful. Another issue arose with the glass canopy, which needed to be mounted above the entrance. The anchors for the canopy needed to be high up on the face of the building—which unfortunately meant they needed to be anchored in the walls of a resident’s room. CCI arranged a time with the residents during which they could install the necessary parts and ensured that after installation the anchors would be unnoticeable, thereby minimizing the impact on the tenants.

In residential projects, CCI always ensures that the residents are not disturbed by the work that goes on. During the Bryant renovation, CCI adhered to that principle by working with the residents to avoid negatively impacting their homes.
