Sunrise was hired on a design-assist contract to aid in the design development/CD phase and assist with keeping the design within the established budgets. SEI participated in weekly design-assist meetings with WT Rich, William Rawn, and representatives from the city of Cambridge. These meetings held varying agendas but focused primarily on value engineering and exploring different material options and details. SEI worked diligently with the design team to establish a menu of items and associated costs from which the entire team could track, evaluate and aid in the decision-making process. At the conclusion of the design assist phase, the design intent was maintained and the project cost was reduced. Product scope included aluminum curtainwall, aluminum vents, aluminum skylight, thermally broken framing, insulation, terra cotta, phenolic panels, and composite aluminum panels.
