Plan development and approvals delayed the construction start by three months, reducing a difficult 12-month schedule to only nine months to complete this project. To furnish and install the new mechanical and plumbing systems within the newly condensed construction schedule, it was essential for the Shapiro & Duncan project team to focus heavily on preplanning with Building Information Modeling (BIM) and prefabrication.
Our plumbing solution required total replacement of all piping, equipment and fixtures to create a completely new plumbing system.
