This construction management assignment involves renovation of the lower-level, 1st and 3rd floors of this 5-story building in Oberlin, Ohio. It creates five distinct office suites including Career Development, Engaged Liberal Arts, the Bonner Center, ID Card Office, and Client Services. Along with office and collaboration spaces, a new state-of-the-art multi-purpose lecture hall will act as the centerpiece between the five departments. Utility and service replacements include fire line, HVAC, water lines, boiler lines, and addition of a new sprinkler system. New electrical and IT at lower level and 1st floor.
We have met and overcome several long lead delays due to Covid-related material disruptions. All work is taking while the library remains occupied. Demolition required abatement of hazardous materials. We have been able to absorb a 50% increase in project scope with only a three-month extension of the schedule.
