"Driving the stupid out of construction™"


Ivoclar Vivadent

IVM, a high-tech dental manufacturing company, was experiencing rapid growth and needed to expand their production capacity. To this end they had three separate projects that all needed to be completed at the same time and within a 12-week time frame. To ensure a successful outcome, BD Engineering introduced a Lean Construction principle called Pull Planning to IVM’s project management team (Client, Architect, and General Contractor). This principle helped the owner, design teams and contractor to quickly identify any pinch points in the projects’ schedule and identified ways to streamline the process. Based upon that Pull Planning session it was discovered that key pieces of equipment would need to be ordered prior to the finalization of the design documents to maintain the design and construction schedule. Highlights of this process included:

  • Identifying client expectations and proposed outcomes.
  • Developing the conditions of satisfaction and milestones to work within IVM’s construction timeframe requirement of 12 weeks for design.
  • The Pull Plan was broken down into weekly increments. Then each discipline began to determine work items that were required to be completed at the end of each of the 12 weeks.
  • Once the Pull Plan was completed, we were able to determine that the 12-week design schedule could be met.

Baldor Produce

When Baldor Produce needed to relocate their food processing operations and corporate headquarters, they relied on BD Engineering to make their vision a reality. The project consisted of renovating an existing approximately 200,000 sq ft warehouse facility in Hunt’s Point, NY and converting it to produce processing, cold storage, distribution and corporate office space. The design also included the installation of two 750 kVA generators to allow the facility to operate at near capacity during a power failure. This site was also served by a rail spur to bring in raw product.

Really Cool Foods

Really Cool Foods is a high quality food processor that specializes in preparing ready-to-eat meals and entrees. Their successful business had outgrown their existing operation in Syosset, NY and they needed a new, state of the art facility to accommodate the growing demand for their gourmet product line. BD Engineering provided the design for the new 60,000 sf food processing facility with the capability to expand to 360,000 sf as the business grows. Also part of this project was the design and construction of their new corporate headquarters. The office was designed to meet the LEED Gold certification level.

Brooklyn Navy Yard

This 270,000 sf facility built in the 1860’s as a ship building shop had been abandoned for decades. The Brooklyn Navy Yard’s mandate was to renovate this facility to accommodate multiple food processing/light industrial tenants with the effect of creating hundreds of jobs while maintaining the original character of the building. With a construction budget of over $50M, BD Engineering was up to the task. We had to balance functionality and flexibility with the need to maintain the historic integrity of the building, all while achieving LEED Silver certification.

This new 40,000 sf facility was designed to allow for expansion that would double their distribution capacity.
