Competitive Sealed Proposal

This 15 week project was commissioned as a way to update a very outdated student events center. The majority of the building remained occupied during construction and Sabre worked in close communication with the current tenants and the university. As we were working in an occupied space with student groups and event teams, our team worked around quiet times, and coordinated with the owner contracted furniture vendor for glass wall installation. Sabre relied on our existing key relationships with building management and occupants to ensure minimal disruption.

Both the original project schedule and budget were met. Some of the more unique items on this project included an ornamental “deer horn” glass chandelier which is one of the centerpieces of the space. Since this project completed we have been awarded many more projects with The University of Texas at Austin, proving that we leave behind very satisfied clients.
