Cutler Associates (construction manager) and Sasaki Associates (architect) collaborated on the Babson College First Year Residence Hall and Schlesinger Innovation Center. With very complex mechanicals, the project was ideally suited to benefit from BIM technology. Through a virtual design and construction process, Cutler and Sasaki were able to detect and resolve design issues prior to the work being done in the field. The plumbing and electrical subcontractors quickly realized the benefits. The value to the owner is a savings in both time and cost.
