Hawaii Regional Security Operations Center

This two-story 312,275 sq.ft, design-build facility includes a Visitors Control Center, Warehouse, Antenna Farm and Inspection buildings, and many other supporting structures. This project utilized both interoperability and BIM (Building Information Modeling) to advance an aggressive 36-month design/build schedule. Through the use of BIM the structural team worked together utilizing many of the same electronic files. This enabled the “mill order” of structural steel to occur only 3 months after notice to proceed. As the structural design package advanced ahead of other disciplines, final coordination was essential. Building Information Models were developed to assist with “clash detection” between the various services and the structural frame.
