Kimley Horn


Clancy & Theys has delivered a construction management project on Kimley Horn Fit-up. A 56,220 square feet demolition and renovation of two and a half floors of existing office space, and common areas on the 5th, 6th, and 7th floors of the former Bank of America Tower on Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh. The scope included upgrades to the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection. Additionally, the floors were redesigned to enhance the aesthetics of the offices, common areas, and lobby space. Two different architects were on the team– each designing separate spaces.

The renovated floors: five, six, and seven were not occupied, but the remaining floors of the seventeen-story high rise building were.  All materials and personnel were brought in through the common service elevator. Our Sr. Superintendent, Charles Mims worked with the building manager and to “be a good neighbor,” by scheduling elevator usage so that our work was not disrupting the other occupants of the building. We also followed the noise restrictions so that business occupants were not impacted. Certain scopes were completed outside of typical work hours.

This high rise building was built in 1986, the fire alarm system throughout the building was being upgraded but at a different times so getting the old system to talk with the new system was challenging.  The building as a whole was not necessarily up to code and required some coordination and working together with the city and the Fire Marshall to approve the newly renovated space. Above ceiling space was very limited. Great coordination and planning was required before installation to ensure that all MEP/FP systems would fit, without clashing, and work seamlessly at construction installation.
