An innovation and demo hub for SBI, PMD, and its partners. Designed by SBI, the building was a construction of a new multi-use shell and core, three level building, on the corner of College Ave and El Camino Real in Palo Alto, CA. The project consists of shell and core retail and office areas on the first and second floor. The top floor is a shell and core space for a new residential tenant. The project is approximately 9,600 SQFT with adjacent parking for occupants. It has been LEED Platinum Certified, and received the Palo Alto Green Business Leader Award in 2017.
Our Senior Director Tony Rinella highlighted key points of importance to banking and financial institutions when evaluating the impact of openBIM™ on real estate value creation and optimization. Examples included the role of building information in asset management for an institution with 6 million square feet of office space and more than 500 branch banks, current state-of-practice capabilities, and strategic planning employing digital technologies to help meet primary organizational objectives.
SBI’s Jim Bedrick and Tony Rinella participated a panel of six national experts organized by the American Institute of Architects Project Delivery Knowledge Community to discuss theory and practical experience with international project delivery models. The SBI team focused on the importance of open standards and openBIM™ to optimize collaboration, and the emergence of reliable standards such as Level of Development and Uniclass to organize and support collaboration processes and deliverable artifacts.
