“Our superintendents and foreman were not asked to recall every RFI, drawing revision, or look at other trades submittals to ensure the concrete geometry was correct,” said DPR Concrete Senior Project Engineer Tyler Petersen. “Our crew stayed focused on building and they executed PERFECTLY on the Equinix project! We spent ZERO dollars in rework on the building which is an incredible achievement from our concrete guys.”
Later in the project, the team leveraged prefabrication to help achieve the schedule and quality goals, prefabricating all ductwork, chill water pipes and chillers, electrical skids, precast wall and a large amount of the MEP. “We knew that in order to meet the schedule we needed to coordinate everything beforehand as a team, in the model, and then to prefabricate everything we could on this project,” MEP Engineer, Connor Bailey said.
