Best Buy QuiviraProject Elements:

Lenexa, KS

Contract Amount: $3,420,000

Total Square Footage: 65,245

Project Overview:

Merit was awarded the first of six contracts for this national chain from an initial select bid list.

This facility included the regional offices in addition to their typical proto type sales center.

The largest challenge presented to Merit was completing the center prior to the Thanksgiving holiday. Merit not only met this challenge but completed this center ahead of schedule which today still remains the fastest turn over time from start to finish of (77) calendar days. This time also incorporated the site development, parking lot and storm detention basin. By far the largest contributor to this success story was Merit’s ability to negotiate a contract with on of the largest masonry contractors at that time which at its peak provided a work force of 120 plus masons and laborers seven (7) days a week.
