Goals for the project included:
- Completion of each phase ahead of schedule
- Zero defects at substantial completion of each phase
- Exceeding 75 percent local workforce participation
In order to beat the schedule, DPR incorporated lean construction practices for an open and consistent dialog between trades resulting in higher predictability and smoother workflow. By using this collaborative approach, each phase of the project was not only delivered ahead of the contracted schedule but also with zero defects at substantial completion. This allowed Facebook to begin populating their data suites and trafficking live data sooner. To exceed the local hiring goal, DPR collaborated with subcontractors, held career fairs, and posted hiring information to social media and other websites. This dedicated team effort allowed the project to attain 90 percent of its manpower from the local workforce for both buildings.
