Project type: Acute Care
Project number: 3597900001
Lesson Learned number: 18
Impact: Cost, Schedule, Quality

Lesson Learned/Best Practice

Be aware of design changes affecting MEP prefab deliveries and pushing onsite scheduled activities.

Longer duration of reaction time versus stick built when design changes happen. If stick built, trades are able to grab off the shelf items to fix onsite changes, but prefab changes require extra time in BIM clash detection and fabrication times.

Suggested Actions for Future Projects

Encourage more early team investigation and constructability reviews to identify potential changes. Have a plan to expedite changes/issues through BIM and fabrication to make sure onsite activities are not delayed.
