Savills Studly

Less Than 25,000SF, Build-out, Less Than $5 Million

Savills Studly

Savills Studley is a leading commercial real estate services firm specializing in tenant representation. When it came time to build-out its own tenant space in Chicago, they trusted Leopardo with the project. Highlights include:

  • 13,460-SF high-end build-out in a new building
  • Required working out kinks with the new HVAC system and coordination with other contractors doing build-outs on 54 floors, as well as base building contractors finishing the base building work with two freight elevators
  • Implemented new furniture office front system with a zero-tolerance requirement, which meant that the soffits, walls and floors could not vary more than a sixteenth of an inch from the design dimension
  • Worked with the client and architect to value engineer the project
  • After eight iterations of the budget, Leopardo reduced the budget by 30 percent
  • The substantial completion date was one week before the base building’s opening day, while the client’s move-in date was the same day as the building’s opening date
