Case Study

Triumvirate Environmental

Triumvirate Environmental, an environmental services company, hired Construction Coordinators, Inc. (CCI) to oversee construction management of its new office building. In keeping with Triumvirate’s mission to create and sustain green business practices, CCI created a 25,000 square foot earth-like environment, complete with dark brown floors, leaf green walls, a sky blue open ceiling, and floating acoustical clouds.

Sound proved to play a major role in the construction process, posing challenges at every step. Harvard’s storage warehouse for precious artwork was located in the same building as the office and required massive HVAC units in order to maintain the correct temperature for the artwork, and these units generated loud noise. The sound from these HVAC units would impact the Triumvirate office, so CCI installed large sound attenuators to reduce the noise. During the installation, CCI had to ensure the temperature in the building remained within an acceptable range even as the units were shut off, so they were forced to work only on days with the perfect weather, severely limiting their opportunities.

On top of the issues with the HVAC units, CCI also had to minimize vibrations to avoid damaging the artwork. To deal with any incidents, the team set up a text message system that would alert the Harvard art storage staff any time a vibration of a certain magnitude occurred so that they could identify and deal with any damage. After a few false positives because of nearby train activity, the text alert system was thankfully never needed.

The result of CCI’s hard work was a beautiful (and quiet!) new building which includes offices, cubicles, a kitchen, a fitness center, and a training room to serve Triumvirate’s employees, allowing them to continue their efforts to keep the world spotless.
