NEW YORK, May 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Faithful+Gould, a world-leading project and program management consultancy, is pleased to announce that Farmer Brothers' Project Evolution has been awarded a CMAA Project Achievement Award in the category of 'newly constructed buildings with a value greater than $25 million'. Faithful+Gould served as owner's representative on behalf of Famer Brothers for the 540,000-square-foot headquarter campus relocation in Northlake, Texas.
"We are thrilled to have worked on this award-winning project on behalf of Farmer Brothers," said Faithful+Gould Project Executive Rob Lillich. "This has been a true team effort and a visionary project for the client. It is gratifying to see the Farmer Brothers vision and the hard work of our team recognized in the receipt of this award."
As the next step in Farmer Brothers' evolution and growth, the goal of the project was to achieve a world-class, multi-functional campus that relocated the company's administrative functions from California to Texas, while elevating its manufacturing capabilities.
Because of the design-build nature of the project, decision-making needed to be fast-paced and fluid, incorporating extensive stakeholder coordination to avoid any impact to construction and production schedules. The campus includes a 95,000-square-foot LEED® Silver-certified administration building; a 127,000-square-foot manufacturing and roasting plant; a 258,000-square-foot distribution center; and 60,000-square-feet appropriated for coffee bean receiving, storage and cleaning.
Faithful+Gould's role on the project as Farmer Brothers owner's representative included: monitoring and managing the project schedule, objectives and milestones; contract management; risk management; project cost reporting; establishing and managing an execution strategy; overseeing scope and quality planning; and master scheduling throughout the project. As a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) contract, the schedule was multi-faceted, with different milestone and deliverable dates for key areas.
