North Carolina State University, James B. Hunt Library and Centennial Campus Parking Deck


Outside, the building is covered in a complex curtain wall system, which posed the most challenging aspect of the construction. We pioneered the use of Autodesk BIM 360 Field jobsite management software to track each of the 800 curtain wall units. A bar code was affixed to each curtain wall unit and scanned at three phases: construction prior to shipment, arrival onsite and after installation. The two benefits this provided were that we could track fabrication and installation rates, and we could link each unit’s barcode information to the BIM to facilitate coordination, sequencing and scheduling of the installation. In the digital age, NCSU’s library is redefining the role of the modern library while Skanska’s modern construction techniques are setting industry benchmarks in innovation.
