This Secondary Laboratory project held a very aggressive 3-month schedule that occurred over Thanksgiving and through holiday season. Regardless of an initial delay of 2 weeks, DPR met the challenge by utilizing Lean Construction and the Last Planner program, detailing a site logistics plan and material staging /laydown areas, and short interval planning. This played a big part in identifying roadblocks, allowing DPR to accommodate the owner's request for early access without additional cost or schedule impact.
