State of Michigan – Stevens T. Mason and Constitution Hall

Project Description

CSM Group recently served as the construction manager for the Department of Technology, Management & Budget for the State of Michigan. The multi-phased project included consolidating occupied office space in the Stevens T. Mason and Constitution Hall buildings. Work consisted of multiple temporary moves collaborating closely with move management company, Jones Lang LaSalle.

CSM’s role as the construction manager involved working closely with the client and design group to create estimates, budgets, and conceptual designs starting in the pre-construction phase and continuing through the construction phase. CSM was challenged to maintain a pre- established budget for the project and assist to modulate the design and standards to conform to the cost constraints. The project included a year-long pre-construction phase to evaluate multiple design and budget options. Once a final design was selected, CSM coordinated the bid processes and construction phases, including renovations and upgrades to the Stevens T. Mason building and Constitution Hall.

The project included demolition on all ceilings and interior walls except elevator, stairwell, and electrical rooms, along with new ceilings and permanent interior wall systems for new toilet rooms, conference, and break rooms. Renovation to elevator lobbies and repair to existing exterior stone-clad wall systems will also be included. New plumbing, fire protection, alarm systems, HVAC systems, and a building automation system will be replaced and installed, including installing new lighting and controls, electrical power systems, and new phone/date systems.
