BUILDING STANDARDS

DIVISION 01 -- GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

This Article on Codes, Regulation and Standards shall apply to all Divisions of the Building Standards.

SECTION 01 00 00 - Building Standards Checklist - 2013

 

SECTION 01 00 10 - LEED REQUIREMENTS FOR PROFESSIONAL SERVICE CONSULTANTS

PART 1 - GENERAL

 

  1. The University of Illinois has directed that all new construction projects and major renovations meet LEED silver. This is in line with the Green Building Guidelines for State Construction which have been mandated for all new state-funded building construction and major renovations of existing state-owned facilities. Therefore, future new construction, remodeling, and renovation projects of $5 million or greater will be LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver Certified.  New construction, remodeling, and renovations totally less than $5 million should comply with the LEED® Silver requirements for the appropriate LEED category to the greatest extent practicable. Therefore, buildings will be constructed to be significantly more energy efficient than the current standards and may utilize renewable energy.

 

  1. For Projects $5,000,000 and over the project will be registered with the USGBC and the A/E will pursue at a minimum LEED Silver Certification by the USGBC

 

  1. For Projects that are less than $5,000,000 the A/E will design to LEED Silver Standards to the greatest extent possible and will submit the LEED Checklist, at
    Design Development, 50% Construction Documents, 100%  construction documents, and at the end of construction, demonstrating the LEED points that would have been obtained if the project had been registered with the USGBC

 

  1. The LEED AP will determine the appropriate LEED category for the project:
    1. New Construction and Major Renovations
    2. Existing Buildings Operations and Maintenance
    3. Commercial Interiors
    4. Core and Shell Development
    5. Retail
    6. Schools
    7. Homes
    8. Neighbor Hood Development
    9. Healthcare

SECTION 01 31 21 -  3D BIM COORDINATION DRAWINGS - Contractors

  

PART 1 - GENERAL

1.01 RELATED DOCUMENTS

  • Attention is directed to Bidding and Contract Requirements, and to Division 1, General Requirements, which are hereby made a part of this Section.

 1.02 GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

 

  • Each Contractor, if required by its Work scope, shall be responsible for developing coordination drawings, and participating in coordination meetings as defined herein, and shall have included the cost for such Work in its Bid Proposal.  Coordination cost included in bid must be based on need to develop complete drawings with all trades involved and duration of coordination may be adjusted at the direction of the General Trades Contractor at no addition cost to the contract.
  • A three-dimensional electronic coordination model is to be developed by all coordination participants.  This model will be utilized to establish field installation sequence, resolve trade coordination issues prior to installation, and to make the most efficient use of installation space without sacrifice to system performance for mechanical, electrical, structural and assigned architectural systems.  This method will use NavisWorks design review software as a means of documenting, identifying and resolving inter-relationships and possible interferences between all trades' Work and the architectural features.
  • All Division I thru V contractors and their appropriate subcontractors, and at least one member of the design team are required to attend coordination meetings as required by the General Trades Contractor.  The representative(s) from each contractor is required to be familiar with the Work and have the expertise and authority to answer questions and make decisions and changes to its systems at these meetings. 
  • The coordination drawings may also be used by each contractor as part of its required shop drawing and as-built drawing submittals.  However, they must be made as part of a separate, formal  submission.  
  • Each Bidder should anticipate that each floor (or zone) may require several meetings.  However, in the interest of time, multiple floors or areas may be reviewed in one meeting.  Development of coordination drawings will be by area and floor with order of priority established by the General Trades Contractor.

 

1.03 COORDINATION DRAWING PROCESS

 

  • Kickoff – The General Trades Contractor, after the award of the Agreements, will schedule a kick-off meeting of all participating contractors.  This meeting must be attended by the project manager, detailers and, if necessary, installing superintendent.  During this meeting the team will review:
    1. Format of drawings to be provided to the subcontractors from BMC. Request drawings sheets to be provided prior to meeting.
    2. Division of coordination drawings and fit to standard blueprint paper size.
    3. The Division IV – Ventilation contractor will be designated as the Lead Coordinator and will facilitate the 3D Coordination Modeling Process.  The General Trades Contractor will be the final authority on model issues.  It is the responsibility of all coordination participants to resolve discrepancies pertaining to their own model. 
    4. Determine file transfer medium and weekly document transfer deadlines to meet coordination meeting MEP coordination schedule.
    5. Review precedence of MEP systems and best practice conflict resolution from reports.
    6. Each contractor to provide a schedule of access/clearance required for expected equipment (lights, speakers, VAV, duct detectors, dampers, junction boxes, heat trace, cleanouts, test ports, unit heaters, AV, Fire Alarm, controls modules, exit signs, insulation, typical hangers, etc.)
    7. Provide dimensioned drawing of items indicated in ceiling and/or drywall ceiling/soffit for review by A/E for architectural intent.  This is not part of overhead coordination above the ceiling but will be part of this coordination process  (All item location must be verified by the A/E unless specifically noted on the contract documents).
  • Weekly Coordination Meetings will be held at the General Trades Contractors site office with all participants to review the model progress per the schedule and process indicated below:
    1. All participants are required to identify those submittals required for accurate detailing of the coordination model (such as major mechanical and electrical equipment, light fixtures, etc.) and are to make those submittals a priority in obtaining final approval so the specific information can be incorporated into the modeling process.
    2. Posting of files to the web-based posting site shall be by 2:00 pm on the previous Friday. 
    3. Clash reports will be posted to the web-based posting site Monday at 2:00 pm before the meeting. 
    4. Coordination meetings will be held on Tuesdays at 09:00 AM .
    5. The purpose of the Weekly Coordination Meeting is the review and resolution of items on the current clash report in conjunction with the project coordination schedule.  The meetings will focus on clashes that cannot be resolved by internal collaboration.  The General Trades Contractor will facilitate the meeting and will make final decisions on clash resolution that are the least impact to the project as a whole.  WEEKLY COORDINATION MEETINGS WILL NOT BE USED TO RESOLVE INDIVIDUAL CONTRACTOR’S WORK.  If a contractor does not post a clash-free system of its own work, that contractor will be considered unprepared for the meeting and will be responsible for any delays to the project schedule and any associated costs due to that delay
    6. Each team participant shall review the clash report prior to the Weekly Coordination Meeting in order to clean-up any simple clashes that can be made without review by all participants.
    7. All project participants are expected to be prepared for the meeting with new drawing work of the next area to be coordinated per the coordination schedule and any drawing changes based on the published clash report.  Each participant shall have available any shop model, submittals or other materials required to solve identified or potential conflicts. 
    8. It is expected the coordination schedule will be maintained and all identified conflicts are addressed and resolved per that schedule. 
    9. All agreed upon corrections to identified clashes determined by the team at the Coordination Meeting are to be updated and resolved prior to the next meeting. 

 

  • When an area of the model is fully coordinated and clash-free, each participant agrees:
    1. A representative from the contractor responsible for each system will sign a coordinated set of drawings for all systems. This signature will represent that the contractor is in agreement with the contents of the coordinated drawings. A signature title block will be printed on each drawing. Additional space should be provided for the General Trades Contractor.
    2. Through active participation at the Coordination Meetings that each trades’ work is fully coordinated and the associated field installation will be solely per the model and not in conflict with any other trade or system. 
    3. The Final Coordination Model is to be referred to for resolution of all field installation issues and RFIs.  No extra compensation will be paid for relocating material whose installation deviates from the Construction Documents or Final Coordination Model.  If any deviation is found, that installing contractor is responsible for the full correction of the work including costs incurred by other affected contractors and/or costs borne by the responsible contractor. 
    4. Each coordination participant shall prepare (4) copies of  notated, dimensioned 30 inches x42 inches plots of each system based on the sheet master format established at the beginning of the project.  These files shall be sent to the A/E for review in accordance with the coordination submittal requirements. 
    5. The Model is not considered to be the Final until the A/E and Owner have approved all systems and routings. 
  • Should a conflict arise during installation that was not foreseen or solved during the coordination effort, each coordination participant will work together with the General Trades Contractor to find a solution that is the least impact to all trades and the project.  The cost of this work will be evaluated as the problems arise, however, the party responsible for the conflict will be responsible for the cost of the fix, including the additional detailing time of all parties involved. 
  • The Final Coordination Model shall be kept up to date by all participants during construction to include any project updates including as-built information and submitted at the end of the project to the General Trades Contractor electronically in both the native modeling file format (ie: dwg format) and PDF form.  Items to be included in these files include:
    1. RFI responses are required to be incorporated into the coordinated model. 
    2. Equipment shall be tagged with all pertinent detailed identification information within the model.  This identification information shall be the same and correspond to all other close-out documentation.  This close-out documentation including O&M Manuals, Maintenance information, etc. shall be included in PDF form. 
    3. Burn final documents to disk and submit (4) copies to the General Trades Contractor.  The Division IV – Ventilation Contractor will generate the Completed Coordination Model based on these documents for turn-over to Barton Malow Company. 
  • Participants not attending one or multiple Coordination Meetings, or failing to post their electronic drawing files per the Coordination Schedule, will relinquish the right to request changes to the model in an effort to coordinate their own work, and will execute their Work without impact to the Work coordinated at the meeting.  Should this not be possible, the offending participant who has not met the Coordination Schedule will be responsible for any additional meeting time and/or the costs associated with delaying the model development. 
  • A professional code of conduct is assumed of all participants.  All participants’ documentation will be available on the designated web-based posting site for reference by the other participants.  Drawing files shall never be tampered with by non-owners of the file.  If a mistake occurs and a drawing is inadvertently changed, the responsible party is required to alert all others immediately.

 1.04 REQUIREMENTS OF THE LEAD COORDINATOR

  • The Lead Coordinator will be the Division IV – Ventilation Contractor.
  • Using the A/E’s BIM Model, the Lead Coordinator shall develop and maintain the Base Architectural Model. 
    1. This model shall consisting of cleaned-up floor plans void of any excessive notations, leaders, bubbles/marks, grid lines, etc. that are not required for detailing development and that may potentially cause a conflict in the Base Composite Model. 
    2. The Base Architectural Model is a combination of the Base Structural Model and other architectural elements.  The Lead Coordinator shall receive the Base Structural Model from the Structural Steel Subcontractor.  These architectural elements shall include all elevated pertinent architectural elements into a 3D format including all walls that extend to the deck including, but not limited to fire and smoke walls, soffits and associated framing to be shown as a solid, ceiling planes and establish a finish floor plan. 
    3. Distribute the Base Architectural Model to all participants prior to the start of the coordination effort and update as necessary. 
    4. Should there be significant changes to the A/E’s contract documents, revise the Base Architectural Model and distributed to all coordination participants. 
    5. Verify the Base Architectural Model accurately reflects the current contract documents.
  • Maintain a web-based posting site with access for all participants.  The posting site should include email notification to all project participants and shall maintain a log of user activity. 
  • Collation of all trades’ detailing models as posted to the project’s web-based posting site into a Base Composite Model thru the use of NavisWorks:
    1. Establish a standard 2 inches soft tolerance within the clash detection software.  This tolerance will result in a reported clash for any elements drawn closer than 2 inches  to one another. 
    2. Generate a new Base Composite Model for each Coordination Meeting including the generation of a clash reports and distribution to all project participants per the coordination schedule.
    3. At the end of the project, collect all trades’ final as-built file and generate a Final Coordination Model to submit to the A/E as part of the close-out requirements. 

 1.05 REQUIREMENTS OF THE STRUCTURAL STEEL SUBCONTRACTOR

 

  • Obtain from the A/E Structural CAD files to be used in the generation of the Base Structural Model and pay for any costs required by the A/E for those files. 
  • As indicated in the coordination schedule, the Structural Subcontractor shall develop and provide the Base Structural Model that consists of:
    1. All structural framing members in the final sizes and locations (typically referred to as a “mill order” or “procurement” model) shown in the model as objects with surfaces to be used as the basis of the Base Coordination Model used by all participating detailers.  This model can be void of structural detailing but should include all major components.
    2. If required by schedule, a subsequent, final structural model will be submitted to include all detailing work.
    3. A common insertion point must be established with the General Trades Contractor and all coordination participants prior to the beginning of the structural coordination process.  No detailing work shall take place until an understanding of the insertion point is decided upon. 
    4. The Steel Subcontractor is responsible for resolving their own modeling issues (ie: steel not to scale; missing key structural components; model is missing surface data and only shows wire frame data, etc.)  in order for all coordinating parties to use as a baseline model.
    5. The Steel Subcontractor is responsible to provide a steel design model in a usable format and a usable file size for all other coordination participants to use as a base design model. 

 1.06 DETAILING REQUIREMENTS OF ALL PARTICIPANTS

  • A folder system will be established by the Lead Coordinator on the web-based posting site to be used by all coordination participants.  The folder use and structure includes:
    1. Progress Drawing Folder – As each coordination participant makes progress to his model, the drawing files shall be posted and maintained in this folder.  These files are then made available to the other coordination participants for reference during their drawing progress.  These files will not be used in the generation of the Base Composite Model and uploaded into the clash detection software prior to a scheduled coordination meeting. 
    2. Postings Folder – prior to each Coordination Meeting as per the schedule, post all progress drawing files here.  These are the files that will be uploaded into the Base Composite Model for clash detection.  There should be one file per trade per floor despite the area of the floor currently being coordinated.  As additional areas of the floor are drawn and coordinated, the previous floor file shall be over-written and posted here.  Refer to the standard file naming conventions listed below.
    3. Completion Folder – once a floor is fully coordinated and clash free, the final coordinated drawing file shall be posted to this folder. These are the files will be used for the Final Coordination Model.
    4. Clash Report Folder – all clash reports generated by the clash detection software for the Weekly Coordination Meetings will be posted to and maintained in this folder.  Two types of reports will be generated:  one that only clashes the trade work, the other will include clashes of architectural elements.  All clash reports will be saved in this folder as history documents.
    5. For ease of use by all coordination participants, the following file naming convention shall be used for posted electronic files. 
      1. In-progress drawing files shall be named “PROJECT-TRADE-FLOOR#”.  For example, a file for Project X completed by the Ventilation contractor for Floor #1 will be titled, “ProjectX-Ventilation-01”.  Do not use the coordination area in the file name.  As areas by floor are coordinated, the older, less detailed file shall be overwritten.
      2. Final, fully coordinated drawing files shall be saved as “PROJECT-TRADE-FLOOR#-FINAL”.  Example name is “ProjectX-Ventilation-01-FINAL”.
    6. All coordination participants are to maintain a current control copy of their own drawing files outside of the project’s web-based posting site. 
  • All objects within the drawing file must use a “Bylayer” color scheme.  Colors have been determined per trade as outlined below.  The Lead Detailer will assign the appropriate AutoCad color number designation.  Colors will be for AutoCad layering, only, not necessarily for plot colors.
    1. Red – Steel
    1. Cyan – TBD
    2. Blue – Plumbing
    3. Brown – Heating  
    4. Green – Ventilation
    5. Dark Green - Controls

    8. Purple – Audio Visual, Broadcast Cable and Security Pathways
    9. Light Purple – Audio Systems
    10. Red – Fire Protection
    11. Yellow – All Soft Collisions & Clearances
    12. Grey – All Base Architectural Elements (walls, soffits, ceiling & floor planes, etc.)
  • Original placement of the architectural background will be established and must not be moved so that all trade drawing files overlay correctly.  A reference circle on layer “Defpoints” must be placed at intersection of grids “A” & “1” or other as defined by the Lead Coordinator.
  • The common insertion point will be defined by the Design Team on both the Base Architectural and Base Structural Models distributed to all participants to use as a background to detail their work around.  The origin point must not change, as it will affect the collation of the files into the Base Composite Model.  No drawing work shall take place until this point is agreed upon by the team. 
  • When posting drawing files for coordination:
    1. Drawing files must be sent with all necessary layers thawed.  The Lead Coordinator will not thaw frozen layers.  All drawing files will be uploaded into the Base Composite Model in the state they were sent.
    2. Provide only model space information; X-Refs shall be removed from posted files and models shall be purged of non-required information prior to posting.
    3. Posted drawing files should be of each Subcontractor’s system that is clash-free with its own work as well as the given architectural elements in the Base Architectural Model.  The only work that should be shown are elements to be installed in the field.
    4. These files should be void of any text, dimensions or any other notations.  All text, annotations and dimensions can be placed on a separate layer from model entities; for general coordination postings, this layer shall be deleted
  • Each coordination participant is required to submit (1) complete set of installation drawings prior to any work being installed in the field.  These complete drawings are to be fully dimensioned and notated.  Items to be noted in the final, fully coordinated drawing paper and electronic file versions of each system include:
    1. Bottom and top elevations of duct, pipe, conduit racks, cable trays etc. must be indicated (where applicable). 
    2. Dimensions shall be shown from the gridlines to the centerline of each element drawn (round duct, pipe, cable tray, etc.) and from finished floor
    3. Height to top of light housing assembly must be indicated. 
    4. Labeling of all equipment
  • During the coordination drawing effort, priority will be given to those systems that have the least flexibility.  The following list is a descending order of the system priority and shall be used as a general guideline.  Throughout the coordination drawing effort, adjustments and deviations to this list can be made with the approval of Barton Malow Co.  0’-3” clear above the ceiling shall be maintained for access and construction of the ceiling.  Required maintenance and/or code access spaces and set-backs take precedence over all systems. 
    1. Ductwork and appurtenances, except bracing which shall be relocated to accommodate local interferences
    2. Gravity Pipe:  plumbing waste, roof drainage, steam condensate return and other systems that rely upon gravity for flow
    3. Cable tray
