This project was delivered with a fast track approach by utilizing lean processes, resulting in considerable savings in time and money. Early BIM coordination allowed for the prefabrication of all overhead plumbing for the building. As a result, at the end of the project only a single bucket of scrap piping remained. This also allowed for the early release of steel, breaking ground, and starting the structure prior to the release of 100 percent construction documents.
