Collaboration + Ways to Work
Colleges and Universities are with faced rapid innovations across multiple areas of study requiring a faster speed to market for new buildings and renovations. This challenge requires the design and construction industry to adapt. This panel will explore the design build process from RFP to owner occupancy through the lens of the owner/architect/builder. The discussion will focus around the idea that the design/build delivery method is transferable across project scales and typologies and will drive value for any institution.
From a 30,000 sf workplace prototype renovation to a 104,000 sf ground up new construction of a mixed use research building, Northeastern University teamed with Gilbane Building Company, and EYP to develop solutions in a fast, cost effective manner. To do this, the design builder team worked as one entity collaborating across disciplines and professions to break down barriers while fostering creative problem solving, and developing cost effective, quality solutions.
