KAI provided MEP/FP design, Commissioning and Building Information Modeling (BIM) services for the design and construction of a 18,000 SF administrative building. The new building consists of functional spaces including administration/incident command center, departmental functions, sleep lab, cardiac rehab functions, and other support functions. In addition, the new building included site reorganization with a new helipad, existing building demo and a new surface parking lot.
KAI’s MEP/FP group developed Design-Build MEP/FP performance criteria at the onset of design. This criteria identified how the new and existing facilities should function, constraints for utilizing existing systems, options for how utilities should be used, etc. KAI established a level of quality and Design-Build MEP/FP contractors were required to fully analyze the project for best value given the desired performance and utility constraints.
In addition, KAI also managed an architectural/MEP/FP Revit BIM model showing existing systems and utilities. This Revit BIM model was used to depict the phasing elements in the project and also show the scheduling milestones.
