Over a three-year period, CASCO teamed with Safeway to design and engineer their “Lifestyle” concept throughout 25 locations in northern California and Nevada. The project scope included extensive remodeling and, in some cases, the addition of new square footage to the existing building. Safeway projects involved service meat and seafood, service deli, scratch bakeries, pharmacies, bank lease spaces, and Starbucks’ kiosks.

Building Information Modeling was utilized to capture fixture data within the Fixture Plan. The information was shared with Safeway’s store planning, construction, and procurement department.
