A Duo of DBIA Awards for 2020
The design-build project delivery method brings the benefit of collaborative decision-making through a single contract between owners, architects, and contractors. Overlapping construction phases help to expedite the project delivery and requires a highly organized team to be successful. As the recipient of two awards from the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) this year, P2S commends the project teams and our engineers for their accomplishments.
Both projects received the DBIA National Award of Merit and are automatically nominated to win the National Award of Excellence in their respective categories. The winning projects are the Student Housing and Dining Commons at California State Polytechnic University - Pomona (Cal Poly Pomona) in the Educational Facilities category and the University of Washington Harborview Medical Center Hybrid Bi-plane Operating Room in the Healthcare Facilities category.
Travis Taylor served as Project Manager for our team of engineers who provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing design for the Cal Poly Pomona project. "For Design-Build to succeed, you need a true collaborative partnership," says Taylor. "This project stayed true to that philosophy from early design through construction, even when faced with difficult challenges. P2S was fortunate to be part of this excellent project, which would not have succeeded without the dedicated support and involvement of the campus and the design-build partners."
For the Hybrid Bi-plane OR project, Principal in Charge, Darren Schwend, and Project Manager, Peregrin Jones worked within a firmly fixed budget for the versatile space. The integrated ceiling system for the room's mechanical features was an exceptional achievement by our team.
