Conditions & Services: The Market Center Tower is an iconic structure for the City, with working clocks on the main column. Given the high profile, size, and challenging location of this tower, the City Manager (Rick Wahlen) performed detailed interviews with each bidding consultant and their staff, to select the best qualified firm to provide the engineering and inspection services required by the City. As the awarded consultant, KLM provided design services, construction management, full time AWS welding and NACE coating inspections throughout the duration of the project. Rick was instrumental in the project from the beginning of pre-construction to the final walk through and close out, including personally climbing the tower regularly to confirm the project had met his standards. Given the tight confines of the jobsite, KLM conducted weekly meetings locally to update the neighboring businesses and residents as the project commenced. The project was successful, being completed on time and within budget.
