Palo Alto, Calif. – C.W. Driver's work on the project included the installation of 657 tons of structural steel in less than two months.
C.W. Driver has completed construction on the 120,000-square-foot Bloomingdale's in Stanford Shopping Center located in Palo Alto. The new three-story retail space replaces the original Bloomingdale's store that opened in 1996. Construction on the $18 million project began in December 2013 and was completed in September 2014. The scope of C.W. Driver's work on the project included the installation of 657 tons of structural steel in less than two months. The project consisted of four escalators, a freight and passenger elevator, an extensive design-build exterior that included glazing and an Italian thermocromex stucco system. In addition to the shell and core construction, an additional 63 individual vendor shops for various high-end retail clients were constructed inside the store at the same time.
