Design and Construction Difficulties
Incomplete original design：This project has many small individual buildings, some of which lack construction drawings and require close cooperation between the structural design of Butler and the architectural design of the design institute.
Varied schedule of construction plan： Each individual building has anfractuous pipelines. Some individual buildings have many changes in design and require temporary on-site modifications, which influences the construction of buildings.
Difficult on-site coordination：Individual buildings of the project which Butler is responsible for are distributed in multiple areas of the Wanhua Industrial Park, involving 9 project management departments. Different ways of management are employed for all these project management departments, therefore a large number of counterpart personnel are concerned and multi-coordination is needed for materials transportation.
