Procon has been hired to provide building information modeling (BIM) support services for the construction of NASA’s Measurement Systems Laboratory in Hampton, VA. Procon will leverage its expertise in BIM and more specifically in GSA’s BIM standards and protocols to ensure effective use of BIM during design and construction of the $95.6 million, 175,000 SF laboratory building. GSA is constructing this new laboratory to house about 40 modular research labs for the research and development of electronics, lasers, clean rooms, and instrumentation. The Measurements Systems Laboratory will also consolidate the operations of many laboratories currently spread throughout the campus.
Procon will facilitate and review the entirety of the project’s documentation submission and BIM execution. In this role, the Procon team will conduct all BIM Project Planning meetings, review that all project plans meet minimum BIM contract requirements, verify that all deliverables meet contract requirements, and create a 4D schedule model from which construction progress will be tracked to ensure that project schedule and budget remain unchanged. The Procon team will also perform clash detection analysis to ensure building discipline systems and components do not conflict with one another and are coordinated. The team will perform quality control analysis, facility reviews, and coordinate updates of models throughout construction phase to ensure as-built model meets requirements and is ready to use for facilities management programs.
GSA awarded Procon a two-year construction management contract for the Phillip J. Burton Federal Building in San Francisco, California. Located at 450 Golden Gate Avenue, the $12 million, 75,000 SF tenant improvement project for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers encompasses two full floors of the Burton building. Procon will provide project management for both the design and construction phases of this two-year project. In addition to initial design constructability reviews, Procon will provide project management and inspection services for demolition, new construction, retrofitting sprinkler and fire alarm systems, retrofitting existing electrical distribution systems, realigning office and support spaces for tenant improvement, and managing the tenant move.
The Burton Federal Building and United States Courthouse is located in the Civic Center area of San Francisco and is the largest federal building in the San Francisco metropolitan area. Constructed in 1964, the building consists of 22 stories above ground with two underground levels of parking. Situated on 2.6 acres of land, the building has approximately 1,244,600 rentable square feet with 236 underground parking spaces.
