What do you do when faced with the challenge of redeveloping a mall into a mixed-use, upscale property with a 150-room Nobu Hotel and restaurant, 13-storey office building, outdoor event venue and 90,000 square foot athletic facility. Is that even possible? For The Beck Group, this is simply another day’s work.
“Not only is this project extremely complex, it’s also the first of its kind to repurpose an existing mall this large in North America,” said Tim Riefenberg, BIM manager for The Beck Group. “We’re a tech-driven firm, so it was clear early on that we would need the most advanced technology to help us overcome the challenges and deliver the project on time.”
Standing at the foot of a mountain of challenges, The Beck Group turned to BuildingPoint SouthEast. The Beck Group adopted a constructible process that combined design, project management, and engineering models into a collaborative and data-rich platform centered around Trimble Connect for data sharing. Field-oriented technologies, including Trimble Field Link and two Trimble RTS773 Robotic Total Stations, provided the contractor with the flexibility to handle a broad range of layout and data collection.
