The Project: ORANGE FLATS

Project Description

Orange Flats features 24 premium one and two-bedroom residences off of the Santa Monica & La Brea intersection. The development draws inspiration from an 'al fresco' connection to personal exterior space and outdoor lifestyle concept and thus will feature a generous amount of terracing outdoor space per unit angled 15 degrees to the West of the Boulevard and a landscaped rooftop deck. The architecture firm Office Untitled developed the project design, and the project is developed by MCAP Partners, a privately-held real estate investment and development firm headquartered in Hollywood, CA. MCAP specializes in identifying and acquiring undervalued properties in key entry barriers and assets with solid repositioning potential in gateway markets. Leveraging a vertically integrated, operationally focused approach to project development, MCAP has consistently executed creative strategies across diverse asset classes. Construction Management was led by the renowned Turner & Townsend, experts at managing the many moving parts of capital projects and complex programs worldwide. Uniting efforts with both MCAP and T&T stakeholders allowed identifying and solving conflicts in anticipation. This way, construction stayed on budget, and the number of RFIs was significantly reduced in this stage.

Scope of work

Corbis performed a one-round BIM Clash detection process based on Revit models created by design consultants. Our team prepared the models for the analytical routines, which are run in combination with visual inspections to detect coordination issues and present recommendations and solutions. Once our team received the documentation from the client (consisting of BIM models in .rvt format), the first step was to audit the condition and working standards observed in each model (architecture, structure, and MEP). A heat-map analysis was carried out to determine the areas with the most significant possibilities of finding conflictive situations within the project. With the most critical areas of the project correctly identified, our team cross-checked each MEP discipline with structural and architectural elements. The next step was to break down the gross amount of clashes by filtering situations and emphasizing the areas previously determined in the heat map. Our team of engineers and construction managers reviewed the BIM models and drawings and identified the areas where clashes are more likely to happen. We then focus our energy on fixing the critical areas to reach the construction stage with all possible interferences correctly solved and accounted for. Our streamlined and efficient approach allows our teams to represent Owners and Developers in a project, and get the job done, the first time around.
