Schott Solar ReMo

  Return to CH2M Hill

Mr. Lagomarsino was the Lead Architect of record for the Schott Solar ReMo project located in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

This project was a part of a workload leveling for the CH2M Hill companies interoffice production efforts. Mr Lagomarsino, as a licensed architect whose licensing home state was in New Mexico, helped to coordinate the interdisciplinary efforts to complete this manufacturing facilities' fast track project.

This project involved a German client relatively new to the U.S. Fast track process. The process involved multiple B.I.M. platforms NOT all based in Revit 2008, but with Structural in AutoCAD 2D and Mechanical and Electrical in MEP 3D, all of which were based in Spartanburg, with the Lead Architectural initially based in Spartanburg, but then moved to the Dallas architectural. This effort was produced with multiple submittals before design was accomplished and under a very tight deadline of 9 months from Pre-design to Substantial completion for tool move-in. The project is approaching shell up sheathing completion and getting ready for interior walls very soon.

3D was used extensively to develop the moderately simple forms eventually used for the facility. Unfortunately the structural portion of this modeling was not selected to be done in Revit Structural. This made for substantially difficult production budget constraints and required the architectural department to model the 3D portion of the metal building manufacturers' steel designs.

3D was used to present many options to the client whose budget was very tight. Like many projects a simple version of the concepts was chosen for the final elevations.
