Case Study

BJ’s Wholesale Club New Store Construction


bjs1 bjs2


EMG was selected to oversee construction of a very unique retail construction project – a new “build-to-suit” BJ’s Wholesale Club in Flushing, NY. This new BJ’s location was only one of several vendors in a retail development that included three stories of “stacked” retailers, two residential towers and over 1.2 million square feet of mall space – longer than a city block. The project was already underway, being managed by the developer, and BJ’s internal workload was increasing. Due to the time consumption of this complex new build project, they chose to outsource the project management.


The site was completed in six months, and EMG was chosen to continue providing project management services on the next new build project in the NY area. Using the EMG drawing review and change order review processes, EMG was able to negotiate a greatly reduced change order total for the project saving BJ’s Wholesale Club a significant amount of money.
