DH Project Management's Scope

Dowling Houy (DH) was hired early in SapientNitro’s process as the overall project manager.  The project assignment was to serve as the owner’s rep throughout the project.  Sapient had negotiated to take another floor in their building allowing for some much needed expansion space.  The original intent was to do minimum work to the space but upon meeting with Senior Management the team took this opportunity to renovate their existing space on the 3rd floor and brand the new space with the look and feel of SapientNitro.
