Based on successful teaming for the previously completed Harvard University biophysics laboratory project, Burt Hill and Shawmut Design and Construction were commissioned to fit out the interdisciplinary laboratory in the university’s Center for Brain Science for Professor Yun Zhang.

A fast track design-assist schedule was agreed upon to execute documents for the project. The shortened design period allocated four week to generate a permit set and 12 weeks to coordinate with the contractor with a design/build methodology in mind.
