The new $320-million, 230,000-sq-ft Sutter Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley, CA was designed with energy-efficiency in mind. This healthcare project used a new 10-party Integrated Form of Agreement. All participant trade partners, from the owner, architect and general contractor (typical for a standard IFOA), to all the secondary contractors for mechanical, electrical, plumbing and design participants, signed a contract to work together as the Integrated Project Delivery team. Their collective goal was to eliminate waste via LEAN methods and deliver the project on or under budget, at 30% under the standard time frame.
