We also installed all hollow metal doors, hollow metal frames, wood doors, door hardware, marker boards, toilet accessories, fire extinguishers, fire extinguisher cabinets, projection screens, entrance floor mats and frames. Our scope of the project involved several unique features, including:

  • Furnished and Installed a lift and shift acoustical ceiling system on the 10th floor in the board room, conference areas, and presentation areas. The recessed panels provide a clean looking concealed grid system and advanced acoustic ratings.
  • CCC installed numerous glass marker boards and very large motorized projection screens. Several areas had Level 5 drywall finish required for areas where the walls would be receiving whiteboard paint.
  • Multiple areas had exposed ceilings; within these areas we built acoustical ceiling clouds to house light fixtures and overhead chilled beams. The clouds had 6” aluminum knife edge axiom trim around the perimeter.
