One challenge the UHS Henderson Hospital team encountered at the outset of the project, an in-progress building that's part of the Union Village Health Village in Henderson, Nev., was how to allocate optimal time for design in order to meet the customer's vision, without compressing the scheduled time allotted for the field to complete construction.
During the design process, the UHS team decided to take a risk on a potential win-win solution that would meet both needs. Rather than engineering the job and producing design drawings that would later be used to create shop drawings and coordination models, engineers and detailers collaborated to produce design deliverables and shop drawings from the same 3-D BIM model.
