Professional Experience

EMPAC-Performing Arts Center

In October of 2004 Jersen Construction Group began the site work, Foundations, and Structural Concrete Package on the most cutting edge and complex structure ever built at the prestigious Rennsselaer Polytecnic Institute. The project had the following challenges.

Extremely sharp sloping site features on a postage stamp sized site. Building size of 375,000 SF built on a 3 acre site footprint.
Design/Build requirements on a fast track schedule.
Over 7000 embedded items and box-out locations.
Over 2000 detail changes on the fly mostly occurring within 8 hours of pour time.

Albany NanoFab

In January of 2001 the State University of NY at Albany embarked on the monumental task of entering the ultra competitive market of Research and Development of 300 mm microprocessor wafers. The project consisted of three phases.

Project Success:
After three years of project leadership this program has proven to be the single most successful endeavor SUNY Albany has ever undertaken as well as Welliver McGuire Inc, being delivered on time and under budget.

  • Development of an incubator office and lab space to collaborate with the ongoing R & D of this technology.
  • Develop 70,000 SF of class 100-cleanroom space inside 368,000 SF of support building that would become the foundation of attractiveness for Global Leaders
  • Installation of the computer chip collaboration business (ISMT) with member firms as IBM, Intel, Infineon, Invent, Texas Instruments and others.
  • World’s most cutting edge wafer building tooling into the world’s most advanced cleanroom facility.
  • This aggressive program had the impending challenges of:
  • Designing, building, and fit-up on a fast track schedule with the procurement constraints and red tape of the NYS government.
  • Delivery of the project within a concrete budget set from a conceptual narrative only of what the facility would be.
  • Value engineering the facility at 25%, 50%, 75% and 90% level of design to fit within the stages of funding availability over an extended schedule.
