The Warriors in Transition Complex at Schofield Barracks brings together functions that were previously spread out, increasing the efficiency of operations that provide services to wounded soldiers.The design-build, LEED Gold/Silver project consisted of the construction of three buildings: a five-story barracks with 60 two-bedroom units; a four-story, multifunctional admin services building (containing a Soldier Family Assistance Center); and three headquarter spaces. Also included was a central plant.
By adding a few digital enhancements, the NPCL project team was able to better understand the sequencing and design coordination of the mechanical, electrical, and underground utilities.The project team reached out to PCL's Civil Engineering group to produce the 3-D models of the underground work. In addition, the team used a completely electronic plan room on-site, allowing full-time access to the 3-D models.
This technology amounted to a significant improvement for the client. They appreciated PCL's quick solutions to technical conflicts, along with further transparency. Nordic PCL also provided monthly as-built drawing updates that exceeded USACE expectations due to their timeliness, level of detail, and clarity.
