MAKING PROJECTS PENCIL
We recognize the challenges of developing a project around a new structural system and we bring our expertise to project teams that are seeking creative solutions to make a mass timber project financially viable. Our efforts are directed toward reducing overall cost of construction through smart and informed selections of not just the structural system, but how we can leverage complimentary benefits in building mechanical, electrical, envelope, and interior systems.
PIONEERING THE MASS TIMBER EXPERIENCE
Because Swinerton is a national leader in numerous construction market sectors, we combine market sector knowledge with mass timber advantages to bring beneficial outcomes to our clients. We have pioneered mass timber solutions to market sectors, including: Affordable Housing, Aviation, Civic, Community College, Corporate Accounts, Healthcare, Higher Education, Life Science, Office and will soon add Hospitality and Residential.
Mass timber can be faster if it is well understood and critical steps are considered in the design and construction phases, such as: bringing on the mass timber trade partner, detailing fabrication during the design phase, securing design-build trade partners for MEP and envelope, and scheduling strategies for critical follow on subcontractors. We will maximize prefabrication and deliver a kit of parts to assemble against the digital twin developed in the design phase. Swinerton has a proven track record in mass timber, delivering construction 20% faster than conventional construction and 30% faster on full project delivery (design and construction) with early cost certainty.
HIGH PERFORMANCE BUILDINGS & LOWER OPERATING COSTS
Low energy mechanical solutions, natural daylighting strategies, more robust envelope performance Swinerton understands how to bring these solutions to the table in a synergistic way with mass timber. We provide opportunities for projects to be delivered as Net Zero Energy and engage in robust discussions around Life Cycle Analysis and Net Zero Carbon solutions.
