SUFFOLK BREAKS GROUND ON BRIGHAM AND WOMEN’S HOSPITAL ‘BRIGHAM BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE’ PROJECT

Project team to manage construction of 620,000 square-foot medical research and clinical facility and below-grade parking garage

BOSTON, MA, June 24, 2013 – Suffolk Construction, one of the most successful, privately held construction management firms in the country, recently celebrated the groundbreaking of the Brigham Building for the Future project in Boston, Massachusetts. Located on the Brigham and Women’s Hospital campus in the world-renowned Longwood Medical Area, the $280 million project totaling 620,000 square feet will feature an 11-story, research lab and clinical facility and 460-car below-grade parking garage.

The state-of-the art building will encompass lab and outpatient clinical space, advanced imaging facilities, and a conference center, bringing clinicians and researchers together to foster translational medicine. A pedestrian bridge will be constructed to connect the Brigham Building for the Future to the existing Carl J. and Ruth Shapiro Cardiovascular Center, which was also built by Suffolk.

The Suffolk project team will utilize the innovative, hybrid up/up construction method for the core and shell of the building. This method will enable the simultaneous construction of both the substructure and superstructure. Throughout the duration of the project, the project team will also implement Target Value Design, Model-Based Estimating, and Lean Construction processes to enhance team-wide collaboration, minimize issues, and save significant time on the overall schedule.

Designed to achieve LEED Gold certification, the building will feature a roof garden to reduce storm water runoff; a system that cleans and reuses storm water for mechanical equipment; and a co-generation plant to supply the building with electricity, steam, and hot water.

Suffolk is partnering with architect firm NBBJ. Construction is scheduled to be completed in fall 2016.
