Blum Construction Wins Design-Build Contract for AKG North America's New TS Office Building
August 1, 2014
Frank L. Blum Construction Company won the design-build contract for AKG North America’s new TS Office Building on their Mebane campus. Blum’s preconstruction team helped secure the project through their innovative approach of constructing the 7,500-square-foot building using load-bearing steel studs and pre-fabricated wood trusses, rather than the pre-engineered steel frame originally contemplated.
This approach saved AKG more than 13% on construction costs while still delivering 100% of the desired program spaces. Blum’s design partner on the project is Winston-Salem-based Steele Group Architects. The construction will be completed over a period of six months.
