HANOVER, New Hampshire – USACE Public Works air conditioning technicians John Adams (left), Jim Crary (center), and Mike Sadonsky (right) remove air conditioning components from CRREL’s Cold Room Complex here May 3. Preparation work is on schedule for the partial infrastructure upgrade of the 50+ year-old facility that provides controlled environmental conditions down to -35C (-30F) degrees. The $750+K project (Section 219 / Operation & Maintenance funded) replaces nine of the 24-rooms with four stand-alone structures that will provide improved energy efficiency; and more accurate temperature control capability. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the FY 2017.

As ERDC delivers innovative solutions for a safer, better world, investments are continually being made to ensure that its facility infrastructure meets the demands of future generations.  The most recent investment includes the ERDC headquarters building that is nearing 60 percent completion.  Yates Construction has implemented the use of Building Information Modeling to enhance the traditional construction drawings, designed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mobile District, with 3-D computer models.

Figure 1. Yates Construction’s leadership team finds great efficiencies are gained when they build a project twice.  By virtually building the ERDC headquarters building using BIM modeling software before physical construction started, Yates’ project teams were able to create information rich models that contain valuable information regarding the building’s design, potential constructability issues, as well as subcontractor logistics.

Figure 2. In BIM modeling of the ERDC headquarters building there is not just one model created by the Yates Construction team, but several that are integrated into a composite master model.  Each discipline including structural engineering, mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering creates a model independently of all the others, based upon the Mobile District’s original contract plan set, which is the starting point.
