Both were designed and constructed within a compressed six-month schedule. The design/build team met this accelerated time frame using Building Information Modeling (BIM) software, allowing in-depth clash detection to avoid significant problems.
Construction began before the completion of the process layout to meet the schedule. However, using the model in both the design phase and in the field allowed changes to the structure and building envelope to accommodate the process until fabrication of foundations and structural framing occurred. Ongoing coordination throughout the construction window resulted in minimal field changes. Our project manager also provided specification and cross-discipline coordination of process equipment and plant process and environmental control systems.
