Pinkard contracted with Evergreen Country Day School to build their brand new campus. The school had been operating out of temporary trailers on site and Pinkard’s crews arrived mid-summer to get underway.
A “simple” project in many ways – a wide open area to work in and all new construction – was complicated by a very complex roof system - over 20 roof lines in all, exterior finishes ranging from stucco to metal to stone, and lots and lots of granite that had to be blasted. The team worked their magic, sequencing everything perfectly and bringing in many third party inspectors to ensure that everything was absolutely water tight.
Superintendent Jack Cochran remembers spending long days in the office -- the place all superintendents dread most -- working on the schedule while lovely summer days were passing him by.
“It killed me sitting in [the office] punching at my computer while these days were rolling by and dirt should have been flying, but I’ll tell you, that schedule made this project,” said Cochran.
All their hard work paid off when they were able to turn over a building that was on time and of the utmost quality. Pinkard’s careful planning and close team work with the owner and architect for cost savings also allowed the owner to come away with nearly all of their wishlist items including smart boards and a state-of-the-art security system.
