It’s common knowledge that fast-tracked construction comes with scheduling and logistical risks, even for a single-building project. At the $1-billion Metropolis mixed-use development under construction in Los Angeles—with four towers and a podium on a 6.3-acre site, three overlapping construction phases and two different building teams—successful fast-tracking also depends on intense cross-team coordination.

“The project is so large, we wanted to minimize the risk, so we selected two general contractors instead of one,” says John Wong, project executive for AECOM/Tishman, project manager for the entire 4.1-million-sq-ft development. “There is less financial risk and performance risk” with two contractors, he adds.
