Project Type: CM at Risk
Project Cost: $18,500,000
Est. Substantial Completion Date: Summer 2014
The project involves the construction of a Western MA Regional Women’s Correctional Center Expansion. The project will add approximately 18,000 SF to the existing Correctional Center Facility. The new housing structure (Housing Unit 3) will provide 64 additional inmate cells with a unit management core. Construction of a two floor plus a plenum, 18,750 SF, 64 cell housing unit and the expansion of the inmate processing building is planned. This is a LEED Silver Plus project. The Project is using Building Information Modeling (BIM), Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) principles, and Lean construction delivery tools. Integrated Project Delivery is a more collaborative project delivery approach that integrates people, business structures and practices in a process that collaboratively harnesses the talents and insights of all participants to optimize efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication and construction.
DCAMM is using the three following practices to implement IPD principles on the Project:
- High level of collaboration and coordination among all IPD team members: DCAMM, DOC, Kleinfelder/SEA and consultants, Hampden County Sheriff’s Office, and trade partners.
- More intense pre-planning for all actions, using Lean tools such as pull planning and Last Planner™. Specific Lean tools that will be applied to trade contractor work will be set forth in the Request for Bid packages.
- Full use of BIM capabilities to support “real time” decision making and to ensure coordination from design to construction to commissioning.
