CLSB - Collaborative Life Science Building is an extremely complicated, hyper-fast construction schedule project with several large clients and an amazing set of functions housed within the building. The building enclosure was developed with key lessons that will apply to most other building types. The complexity of the schedule, team, functions, and enclosure performance program all combined to make an interesting project. This course is intended to share the lessons that have been learned and are continuing to evolve through construction.
