Duration: 11.5 Months
IPD/BIM Studio - Spring 2013
The total duration of the 7R EEB Hub was a little over 11 months. This project had a start date of April 7, 2013, and a closeout date of March 24, 2014. Using a west â€“ east phasing technique, the project was able to be fast tracked, allowing different trades to avoid clashing during construction. This project contains integrated systems that make it as sustainable and green as it can be. Not only are these special features expensive, but they also cause a major impact on the schedule of construction. The steel erection
of the west, although a small section than the east, took around 4 weeks to erect, because it the delicacy of the picks. The double skin faĂ§ade also had a long duration of 4 weeks, which greatly impacted the schedule.
