What makes it interesting?
Nanotechnology is the manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular, and supramolecular scale. It may be able to create many new materials and devices with a vast range of applications, such as in medicine, electronics, biomaterials energy production, and consumer products. This clean space nano technology’s future in the world will based in this MIT.nano Building.
How HCSS Software assisted with this project
HeavyBid was a very powerful tool. The bid item list involved 35 major components, which were broken out into more than 50 pages of detailed bid items. Bidding to a private client, BOND was required to provide very detailed unit costs and work zone breakdowns, as well as prepare several iterations of the proposal as the requirements changed during the negotiation process. HeavyBid allowed them to respond to these requests in an accurate and prompt manner, proving BOND’s ability to be experts in the work.
BOND is currently performing construction activities on the MIT.nano Utility Enabling Project, located in the shadow of the MIT Dome in the heart of MIT’s Main Group Campus. Construction started on Aug. 8, 2014, and is scheduled for completion on July 1, 2015.
The complexity of the project and bid process was very involved. The project’s final design involved numerous revisions and changes to the bid documents.
The project scope of work involved: extensive Jet Grout Soil stabilization; drilled-in mini piles; secant piles; solider beam and lagging earth support for a deep excavation of approximately 19 feet across a major urban street in the City of Cambridge; complete furnish and installation of water, fire protection, sanitary sewer, storm drainage, and gas; excavation and earth support for chilled water, steam, electrical, telecom, and specialized mechanical piping systems; complete furnish and installation of concrete and rebar for various enabling of existing building elements; removal, cut, and caps of various existing utilities; and various site improvements and customized restoration.
