Infinity served as Construction Manager At-Risk on this project for the Warrensville Heights City School District, which completed in the middle of the Covid pandemic. Phase and GMP 1 included abatement and demolition of an existing vacant school building. Phase and GMP 2 included the site underground and foundations. Phase and GMP 2 included the interior buildout. The building features 21st Century learning classrooms, gymnasium, playgrounds, athletic fields, and new parking lots.
Our CMR team was a joint-venture with two diverse-owned firms. We participated in monthly community core meetings for the duration of preconstruction and construction. Infinity provided three GMPs for this project. The first was for abatement, demolition and site work. The second for new building structure and and building envelope. The third for MEP, interiors, and the remainder of site work. The School District approved our recommendation to design the project in BIM. It streamlined construction accelerating project completion by one month. Infinity self-performed a drywall, demolition and carpentry package during the finish stage of construction. Achieved 35% diverse subcontracting participation. Excavation uncovered unknown existing foundations, and exceptionally wet soils conditions that needed dewatering. We returned more than $1.8 million in GMP savings over the original budget. The new facility secured LEED® Gold certification. Our team competed for and secured the subsequent new $70 million high school/middle school.
