Description
Ward Construction Co. was selected as the CM/GC as the construction documents were just starting. Ward kept the construction on schedule. The main challenge of this project was integrating a new center Commons addition that is surrounded by 4 additions built over the last 6 decades integrating 4 different building levels. We also were able to deliver 5,000 SF of shell construction for future offices and classroom space. Ward needed to keep the existing 40,000 SF school and 6.5 acre site fully operational throughout construction. There were two phases to this project. The first phase was 10 weeks long and required the relocation of a 60 foot bell tower and electrical main service relocation before the foundations could begin. Also there was a significant challenge in tying together all the different architecture and levels. The project included: site work, demo of existing buildings, maintaining access to the play fields and parking lots. Construction of new: concrete foundation, steel frame, detail veneer brick work, casework and millwork, wood doors, EPDM roof, cement fiber board siding, drywall finished, ceramic tile, resilient flooring, carpet, mechanical, fire protection and electrical with a full lighting control system.
