Construction Management at Risk


$9.6 Million


56,674 SF



Regency Construction Services, Inc. served as Construction Manager at Risk for the innovative think[box] facility at Case Western Reserve University.

Regency provided Construction Management at Risk services for the creation of the Larry Sears and

Sally Zlotnick Sears think[box] at Case Western Reserve University. Implementing the university's

vision and architect's designs, Regency transformed a historic storage facility into a center for

innovation and entrepreneurship that provides space for students, faculty, and community

members to be creative.

With seven stories and over 50,000 SF, the Sears think[box] is one of the largest university-based

innovation centers in the world. Each floor is designed to accommodate a different stage of project

development, from prototyping (third floor) to fabrication (fourth floor). To rework the building

from cold storage, heavy work was done to add lighting and windows as well as infrastructure for

utilies. Exterior facade improvements and the bridge between think[box] and the Veale Center

were also added.

The building is being developed in three distinct phases and includes spaces such as:

  • Collaboration areas and meeting spaces for interaction

  • Statement staircase - a means to move between floors but can also be used for study, meetings, or presentation opportunities

  • Glass-enclosed "think" spaces for collaboration or private study

  • Machine shop with hardware and safety kiosks

  • Tech spaces with computers, laser cutters, and 3-D printers

  • Staff offices
