A commercial interiors project breaks new ground with integrated project delivery (IPD), making 1560 Trapelo Road the first building in New England to fully employ this unique collaborative process.
Building information modeling (BIM) solutions and energy analysis tools enabled the team to design and build a structure that incorporated the most rigorous sustainability standards.
Using a digital workflow, designers created design elements for the undulating ceiling directly from the building information model, enabling faster project delivery and sustainable construction—with less waste.
IPD enhanced collaboration among project disciplines, giving architects the earliest possible access to construction expertise and an understanding of the potential impact of design decisions. The teams used collaborative processes to optimize their project designs, while reducing potential construction conflicts and risks.
