MIT – Renovations to Buildings E17 & E18
Massachusetts Institute of Technology — Renovations to Buildings E17 and E18, Cambridge, MA
We minimized disruptions for users occupying the building, including an existing vivarium, during construction through intense preconstruction scheduling.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) utilized to coordinate MEP/FP systems on the 5th floor lab space - clash detection & coordination between systems and existing conditions.
Precise coordination of mechanical, electrical and plumbing allowed for extensive system upgrades and additions within highly congested spaces.
Barr & Barr previously converted multiple floors within building E18 into educational facilities, clinical research lab space and the headquarters for the MIT Center for Learning and Memory, MIT Center for Cancer Research and a new Mechanical Penthouse.
