Board of Education Adds Three Firms to Project Management Team
At tonight’s meeting, the Unit 4 Board of Education gave approval for administration to enter negotiations with three firms to assist with the planning and execution of $203.4 million in school facilities projects approved by voters in November. Approval of the contracts solidifies the District’s Project Management Team structure to accomplish this work.
Architectural team Perkins+Will and CU-based IGW Architecture will provide consulting services to the Project Management Team. O’Shea Builders will assist the District team as the construction management firm. Coleman & Associates will be assisting the Project Management Team in meeting goals for Minority and Female Business Enterprise (MAFBE) participation in the projects as well as development of design standards across projects.
The scope of these contracts does not include design or construction work on any of the six projects. The firm or firms that will design and execute each individual project are yet to be determined and will be selected as part of the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process in the coming months. The Board also discussed the composition of the community oversight committee.
