 December Update:

  • Currently resolving coordination items for the underground utilities within the footprint of the building, using Autodesk BIM 360.
  • Coordination has involved main chiller piping, electrical feeders, plumbing waste piping, storm drainage piping, and concrete footings.
  • 3D imaging is also enabling the design team to address potential issues on the first floor involving large ductwork, large piping, concrete pilasters, and steel beams.
  • Underground plumbing has begun.
  • The gym slab pour began the second week in December.
  • Underground chiller lines are set to start soon.
  • Underground electric continues at the main duct bank into Area A.

The BIM images show coordination currently being performed in the classroom wing.
