About the project:The 1701 project consists of a 153,000 SF lab, manufacturing, clean room, and office space. The project skin was design-build by the contractor while the remainder of the project was plan and spec. The unique challenges for the project consist of parsed out permit packages separating out the core & shell with the interiors as well as the structure/foundation + site work. The other aspect that made this project challenging was the fast track approach to design and construction where the design was in most cases catching up to the work in the field.
