ANTHC Bragaw Street - Renovation
Anchorage, Alaska, 2002
TBI did major renovations on a 24,000+ square foot interior office for the Alaska Native Tribal Health Corporation. This was a 90-day project which required the 2nd and 3rd floors and a majority of the basement go from an empty shell to finished offices. The roof top HVAC was also replaced, which required mobilizing a large crane to make the switch from the old to the new unit. Difficulties with the electrical subcontractor complicated the completion schedule, but did not prevent the owner from occupying the building on time.
