"Late in the design phase we brought Cahill on board to help us with constructability and value engineering and it has been an excellent experience for our renovation team and construction management personnel. ...The work was conducted by a very professional and experienced team who applied their expertise throughout to ensure that surprises (as one expects in renovating a 40 year old building with poor documentation) were dealt with effectively and in a most cost effective manner.
