McKissack provided program management services on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus to support the Building 10 Revitalization Program.
This program entails incrementally renovating 2.5 million SF of clinical and biomedical research space in the Clinical Center Complex over a 25-year period, commencing in 1999, at a cost of $1.5 billion. McKissack was tasked with a replanning effort to analyze how the project could be reduced in scope and budget and still meet NIH’s facility improvement needs. The firm was very adaptable in its project approach and provided analysis and replanning efforts as budget constraints and government refocusing of priorities caused scope changes. McKissack’s responsibilities included: planning; management support and serving as NIH’s day-to-day owner’s representative for scheduling; cost estimating; space management; document control; budget management; construction management and presentation production.
