DPR and IPD Team
Patient care pavilion addition
The addition to the Alta Bates Summit Medical Campus (ABSMC) is a $298 million, 13 story patient care pavilion and future home of over 200 licensed beds beginning January 2014. The highly collaborative Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) team was faced with many challenges. From planning logistics for a congested urban site to constructability analysis of a congested rebar design, the use of BIM in the ABSMC project has become more than just a benefit; it has become a necessity.
Project team determined to make up delays with BIM
The ABMSC project began drilling piles in January 2011 with a 31 day schedule delay due to permitting, weather, and unforeseen site conditions during demolition. Through hard work, collaboration, and the ability to quickly react to field conditions using BIM, the current schedule is now just eleven days delayed. The project team plans to make up all 31 days of delay before the start of steel in October, 2011.
