The Philadelphia Ship Yard for PIDC

CBD was the owner’s representative for PIDC through the planning, existing building evaluation, site selection, development of contracting method, contract bidding, bid evaluation and negotiation, contract administration, construction and close-out of an industrial headquarters facility located at the base of Basin Bridge.
CBD was responsible for the coordination with K-Sea/ River Associates (as tenant to PIDC) in coordinating the requirements of the lease terms and subsequent relocation of the Tenant to the new facility. Project constraints included MARSAC site control, new Philadelphia Water Retention regulations imposed after the project was bid and initiated.
