Building Information Modeling/ Virtual Design & Construction
Skanska performed construction management services for this 795,000-SF, nearly $700 million mixed-use lab/office retail development. There are two main biomedical buildings built upon a common below grade structure, 459-vehicle parking garage, loading dock, building support spaces and central utilities trigeneration plant. The two new buildings include science research spaces, collaborative work areas, administrative space, a below grade vivarium that includes a 35,000-SF rodent (mice and rats) vivarium as well as a 6,000-SF zebra fish vivarium, auditorium and dining facilities. Ultimately, the campus expansion project houses research and administrative space for 1,090 employees. This is an environmentally responsible and sustainable design that is expected to achieve LEED Gold certification. The buildings were designed and constructed using Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) which allowed the designers, architects, engineers, Skanska and our subcontractors to design, coordinate and build in a 3D collaborative environment. The project utilized a form of Integrated Project Delivery to enhance this collaboration. An extensive multi-trade prefabrication approach was implemented that resulted in eight weeks of project schedule savings while improving safety and quality performance.
