Nestled in the center of Pittsburgh’s business district, this 10-story, 120,000sf existing building was transformed into the home of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Construction included 50 classrooms including computer labs, photography studios, audio-visual studios and control rooms. All of the classrooms are completely “wired” so that teachers can use laptops and audio-visual equipment during sessions. New mechanical, electrical and fire protection systems and 17,000 square feet of administrative offices are also included in the facility.

A. Martini & Co. provided construction management services and offered a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP). As a result of A. Martini & Co.’s efforts, the project was completed for 3% less than the GMP and finished within an aggressive eight month schedule.
