Abstract

This project encompassed various limited pre-construction tasks, including conceptual design through BIM Modeling, structural design, construction feasibility, cost estimation, and investment analysis concerning Worcester Polytechnic Institute's new athletics facility within the context of integrated practice. Currently Integrated Practice is still young in development and has had limited exposure to the construction industry. The project determined that integrated practices can reduce errors, address issues earlier in design phases, and reduce construction times if specific project objectives, scheduling, and modes of communication are clearly defined. With proper implementation and organization, Integrated Practice can possibly become the standard method of construction in the future.
