Ocean Steel, Tocci Building Corp. Join Forces on Alexandria Center HCPD ProjectAugust 1, 2012
SDS/2 customers Ocean Steel and Tocci Building Corp. recently teamed up on the first building of Alexandria Center at Kendall Square, a $500 million build-to-suit science and technology campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The 225 Binney Street project is a six-story, 305,000-square-foot building that features a glass and terra cotta facade and will incorporate two historic buildings.
The project team implemented a Highly Collaborative Project Delivery (HCPD) method that takes the BIM process to the next level with co-location — that is, locating key team members in the same place.
The collaborative process — recommended by Tocci — allowed the daily exchange of models and provided all team members with up-to-the-minute information. The SDS/2 Global Review Station also facilitated 3D shop drawing review and early interaction between project partners.
