2U is a world-class online education system, with a student-focused culture that brings universities into the digital age. In 2016, 2U came across difficulty with the management of a NYC repositioning project, and Abbott was brought on board to recover a project that the internal team, external project management, and external owner’s representative were not able to deliver. 

Recognizing the urgent need for intervention, 2U turned to Abbott to salvage the faltering project. Abbott provided full project and construction management for the repositioning of the Jehovah Witness’s Watchtower printing facility into a preeminent Tech Headquarters for 2U. With lengthy delays and massive overruns, 2U was a tenuous and highly complex project from day one. Within a remarkably short timeframe of just 30 days, Abbott not only fully recovered the project, but delivered it on time and within budget, driving the building’s transformation into world class offices.The completion of this ambitious project marked a significant milestone for 2U, positioning their new offices as a beacon of innovation in the heart of New York City.
