Ground-up construction of a 126,000 SF research greenhouse with 63,000 SF mechanical area. The Advanced Crop Lab was the First-of-its-class Ag Biotech Facility with a wide range of high-tech growth environments enabling researchers to simulate any agricultural climate and precisely measure inputs and outputs. The project consisted of individually conditioned greenhouse rooms with a focus on light transmission and environmental control. Additional research space programmed for growth rooms with precision plant variable control chambers. The project also included a 10,000 SF detached central utility plant which supports the current campus site.
As the Construction Manager, we were responsible for establishing and implementing project controls including budget, schedule, quality, document control, information flow, and maintaining project objectives. Additionally, we facilitated design team interaction and served as liaison with end user groups while ensuring document conformance with client expectations. We worked with user groups and facilities to establish project turnover expectations. We also established and monitored commissioning plans.
