Harrington Hoist

Challenge
Yoe was tasked to deliver construction management for a ground-up conversion of a manufacturing site into office space for Harrington Hoist in Manheim, PA. The aging building included the primary structure and two additions added over the years. While site plans for the additions were accessible, they were not available for the original structure, creating many unknowns throughout design and construction that had to be carefully addressed to keep the project on budget, on time and in alignment with the original design and vision.

Services & Solutions
From start to finish, smart project planning and open lines of communication with the client and all subcontractor partners were critical to this turnkey office fit-out that included office areas, restrooms, kitchenette, conference room and training room with exhibit space.

A critical schedule was continually challenged by unforeseen structural issues that required Yoe’s team to deliver thoughtful solutions to keep the project on track. This included:

  • Managing different elevations across the three combined structures and ultimately lowering the ceiling to accommodate an open office area and the related HVAC, electrical and structural needs.
  • Significant electrical work to bring the aging building up to code and accommodate client needs.
  • Exterior walls without framework and roof ventilation challenges were also addressed.

Results
The Yoe team rose to the challenge, taking great care to manage all aspects of the project from start to finish. Coordinated communication and regular project update meetings ensured all partners were in the loop at all times and decisions could be made quickly and efficiently to keep the project moving. The project was delivered in alignment with budget and schedule goals. Yoe is extremely proud of the relationships built with the Harrington Hoist team.
