In Life Sciences powerhouse cities like Boston and New York City, developers are charging ahead committing to new Life Sciences buildings for scientific breakthroughs. Financing is flowing in at a rapid clip, and at SGA, we’re as busy as ever delivering Class-A Life Sciences facilities for a variety of uses.
These are intricate and expensive facilities to build and construct, increasing the importance of a tightly orchestrated approach between all partners. At SGA, our goal is to ensure that the planning and execution is as seamless and efficient as it can be, with excellent organization and alignment for a design-assist approach so projects stay on schedule and on budget.
The SGA Dashboard is the proprietary platform we use to drive our projects from concept to delivery, and ensure that we meet our commitments. It’s our easy-to-use, web-based tool that is the single source of up-to-date and accurate information for an entire project: where teams find the calendar and milestones, where anyone can identify and see project issues, and so much more.
“The SGA Dashboard is the key to visibility for teams working together for any type of project. It’s proven extremely useful for Life Sciences projects specifically, because of the innate complexity, risks, and issues that must be addressed throughout the multi-stage process,” says Michael Schroeder, Partner and Director of Virtual Design and Construction. “It’s how SGA has been able to design and coordinate 4 million square feet of Life Sciences and VDC projects this year so far, with a full pipeline of new buildings underway and awaiting entitlements.”
Earlier this year, we began introducing the SGA Dashboard to every client, contractor, and sub-contractor in Life Sciences and beyond. We’re thrilled that so many recognize its inherent power to drive new processes.
A selection of the standout features of the SGA Dashboard include:
- Project issues for centralized information
- Clusters for better organization of teams
- A 6-week look-ahead window for a more efficient process
- The design evolution log for reducing change orders
- The risks register for prioritization and awareness
The SGA Dashboard allows us to ensure that every project we are involved in meets and exceeds our clients’ expectations. The adoption of our tool by our partners also allows us to elevate and dramatically improve the architecture and design-assist process writ large, so that we can continue to support the rapid advancement of impactful research that is occurring in the biomedical, pharmaceutical, academic and corporate sectors. Armed with this exciting innovation, we deliver more complex projects more efficiently and successfully than ever before.
