Nebraska Furniture Mart
The Colony, Texas
Paris Projects is the Site Work Program Manager for the 433-acre retail development and the 1.86-million-square-foot Nebraska Furniture Mart and parking deck. When completed, the Nebraska Furniture Mart will be the largest volume home furnishings store in the United States. A bold leader and strong advocate consistently reducing risks and saving costs, Paris Projects has proven to be an ideal choice for Nebraska Furniture Mart.
To initiate work on this project, we established a global program schedule with reasonable milestones that accommodated competitive bid, lump sum contracts that obtained the most economical and market rate construction costs for the owner.
Paris Projects pre-qualified, assembled, and engaged competent and experienced design and construction team members—civil engineers, geotechnical engineers, site work contractors, landscape architects, site electrical engineers, and parking garage contractors. We awarded separate contracts for mass grading, internal roads, site-specific paving & utilities, site-specific landscape/irrigation, site-specific sight and street lighting, and a 2,000-space parking garage.
We integrated the public street lights, electrical, gas, and communications duct bank designs into the internal roadway bid and construction package to minimize filed installation conflicts and schedule delays with the private water, storm, and sewer utilities.
Additionally, we evaluated the geotechnical report and borings to identify and segregate on-site, granular dirt material for retaining wall backfill versus purchasing and hauling in offsite stone for a project savings of $1.7 million.
Paris Projects provided parking areas to design sub grade and installed flex base stone for temporary construction materials staging and then utilized it as final paving for fire lanes, achieving a $500,000 savings in throw-away temporary stone for construction access.
We identified excess on-site structural dirt material and stockpiled it for future building pad construction, which prevented us from having to purchase and haul in select fill and provided $750,000 in savings. Paris Projects ensured a balanced on-site grading design plan, and no dirt has been required to be hauled in or off the site, mitigating expensive truck hauling and disposal costs. By utilizing and managing on-site materials, we've been able to save our client $3,000,000 to date.
Services being provided by Paris Projects include daily construction management, submittal monitoring, proposal and change order issuance, and monthly status and progress reporting.
Initially, I could not have imagined giving up control of the site work—we made the right decision. There is no better team.
