The exterior renovation to the downtown flagship Nordstrom took place over five phases in order to work efficiently around the simultaneous interior renovation performed by another general contractor. Public safety was top priority as the high-traffic store remained open during construction. GLY crews also worked in harmony with Nordstrom staff to prevent disrupting their daily operations and maintain an enjoyable customer shopping experience.
The project involved demolishing and upgrading exterior wall finishes up to 18 feet from ground level including storefront glazing systems [replaced with new aluminum-framed system], canopies and associated structural and MEP components, and storefront windows.
