The IPD Mindset

GeoChem at Brown University
Providence, RI

We are providing architectural services for the renovation to Brown’s existing Geology and Chemistry building. The project includes the replacement of over 80 fume hoods, roof replacement, mechanical systems infrastructure upgrades, miscellaneous building enclosure improvements, construction of accessible restrooms on the first and second floor, and the installation of a complete fire protection system.

The project is anticipated to be completed on an 18-month duration and includes 10 separate phases which were developed by the project stakeholders in order for the owner to maintain occupancy of the building during construction. It is currently being executed using an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) contract.
