Successful BIM Coordination and Creation of Flexible Prototype Solution
Columbia D, part of the Intergate Columbia Campus, is the first of several core and shell projects we designed, permitted, and provided construction administration on for Sabey Data Centers.
This project exemplified the benefits of BIM coordination, setting the bar for subsequent Intergate campus projects. The substantial density of underground conduit makes clash detection especially crucial in Intergate designs. Rather than coordinating aspects of the engineering and architectural components in the field, each discipline provided detailed models, making it possible to avoid design conflicts.
In addition to the building’s core and shell, our team also provided interior design.
Sabey’s Intergate campus buildings are primarily colocation facilities, and all buildings feature a “plug and play” exterior electrical power system, which results in more leasable space for their clients and less architectural changes needed for future electrical equipment updates. These two critical aspects of the design are beneficial for the long-term flexibility needed within the colocation model of multiple and changing tenants.
