Roy and Diana Vagelos Education Center

Group PMX’s team provided Project Management Services to  CUIMC’s Capital Project Management Department for their new medical and graduate education center.  This 107,000 square foot, LEED Gold building has fifteen floors above grade plus one floor below grade.  The program for the building included a 300-person auditorium, state-of-the-art assembly and classroom spaces, administrative offices, an Anatomy Laboratory and a Medical Simulation Center for clinical skills training.

Group PMX, on behalf of CUIMC, conducted an international design competition. Diller Scofidio + Renfro was selected as the Designer and Gensler as the Executive Architect.

As part of the design and execution strategy for the project, the project team elected to use the design-assist process. A façade manufacturer/installer was selected that provided the technical expertise to the design team and allowed the team to maximize the design within the budgetary parameters of the project.  In addition to this strategy, the team conducted third-party BIM clash detection and plan reviews to ensure that all of the complex elements of the building were fully coordinated before the documents were issued for bid.

Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) and a Project Labor Agreement (PLA) were utilized on this project.
