Demolition Is Under Way


Before construction can begin in the new building, everything has to be cleaned out including walls, doors, and all of the electrical studs, conduit, and wiring. Riteway Demolition will oversee all the demolition and get the building ready for construction. It’s not an easy job. First, the acoustical ceiling needs to be removed, the ceilings need to be cleaned, and all the dry wall partitions need to be torn down. Additionally, all the metal from the trash needs to be separated out for recycling.




Kalyn Rothaus has been appointed as the Interior Designer and Project Manager for Brandstar’s new building. She meets with Bill Branning from BSA, the general contractor for the job and Alberto Ramudo, the site supervisor from ICON Design Group Inc. to create the working drawings for the Brandstar project and submit for permit. Today, the three are meeting to talk about the design and timeline for the project. They discuss the plans for day-to-day construction on the new building. To make the new building work, it’s going to require a high level of technology between the lighting, the building management systems, and all of the media.
