What makes a project memorable in the minds of the people who execute it?
It could be a particular challenge you conquered. Some new skills you developed. Or maybe the sheer size and scope of what you accomplished.
In this section of our website, Lockheed project managers talk about projects that are particularly memorable for them. Each one is an example of the earnest effort and dedication our customers can expect on a daily basis, from our project managers and their teams.
“The overall project design and the building’s history made this really interesting. Our scope included the production and installation of historic custom windows and curtain wall across three 19th Century facades.
The finished project resulted in a state-of-the-art building with multiple interior office grants and storefronts. It incorporates a true sense of history with modern design and technology.”
“This large-scale new construction project required Lockheed to provide many different materials. Challenging but fun. We furnished and installed the glass curtainwalls, storefronts, vent windows, entrances, interior storefronts, light shelves and exterior sunshade systems.
This very successful project was due in part to excellent coordination between Lockheed and Gilbane Building Company, the general contractor. Gilbane’s construction expertise gave us the luxury and freedom to pre-fabricate all of the curtain wall and storefront frames. This made for a very streamlined installation, since very little field verification was required. It also saved us a great deal of time, enabling the project to run smoothly and effectively.”
“This brand new high school utilized many products that Lockheed specializes in. But also a few that were new to Lockheed, such as bi-folding doors, automatic sliders, glass sloped roofs at greenhouses, and shadow boxes at spandrel locations.
It was a very interesting and complex project with many segmented openings. Engineering was also difficult to due to the complex fabrication. It called for lots of field measuring and coordination with other trades on a weekly basis — and often on a daily basis.”
