A Look inside the Process:
Marikka’s $6M Expansion and Remodeling Project
Paul Sawyier Library, 319 Wapping St, Frankfort, KY 40601
Networking at 11:30am, Presentation at noon
Curtis Evanoff, Construction Project Manager, Long Construction Management
The Marikka’s project held a spectrum of challenges, construction challenges that were numerous and called upon every ounce of experience a project manager could muster. Not only was the site in a confined space, it was also an active shopping center. The buildings were to have the appearance of a German village with varying façade features while being adapted to a pre-engineered system to allow for an expedited schedule consideration. These exterior challenges were only a part of a project that included a full restaurant, a beer garden/game room complete with a tractor trailer size walk-in beer cooler, three indoor sand volleyball courts (an additional three outside off the covered patio) and a mezzanine that includes a brew room, tasting/party room and admin area. All of this, of course, must be completed under the budgetary constraints of the design-build delivery process while maintaining a high quality in the finished product.
