Project Overview

Project Description

In 2014 the College created a Master Plan which would position the campus for the future.  Features of this plan were developed to increase student access and success, provide student housing, increase green spaces, improve vehicle traffic, improve sports fields, connect the campus with a central walking spine, and introduce select retail shops.  The campus sought to model a 4-year institution, and be a central hub for the surrounding community.  In 2017, this Master Plan was updated and the first three phases identified. 

Phase 1 started in the Spring of 2018, and consisted of creating a new loop road, modified parking, a central walking spine and green space.  This phase is planned to be completed in August 2020.

At this time the College is seeking CMR qualifications for phase 2.  This phase consists of modifying the East Campus facility including finishing the walking spine running to Robert Bishop Drive, additional and reconditioning parking lots along the west and north sides of the campus, modified water retention features, additional pedestrian walking paths and misc. student amenities (lighting, seating, charging stations and/or emergency call stations). These phase 2 items amount to approx. ~$7.5m in total project costs and ~$5m in hard construction costs.

Professional A/E services have already been awarded under a separate contract to Osborn Engineering. This project will be turned over to the Construction Manager at Risk at the 75% CD stage of development.

Scope of Services

The selected Construction Manager at Risk (“CMr”), as a portion of its required Scope of Services and prior to submitting its proposal, will discuss and clarify with the Owner, the breakdown of the Agreement detailed cost components, to address the Owner’s project requirements and refine the project schedule.

As required by the Agreement, and as properly authorized, provide the following categories of services: provide constructability review comments on documents produced by the A/E during the Design Development and Construction Document stage; develop and maintain estimates of probable construction cost, value engineering, project schedules, and construction schedules; lead and manage the Subcontractor Prequalification and Bidding process, Construction and Closeout Stage.

Refer to the Ohio Facilities Construction Manual for additional information about the type and extent of services required for each. A copy of the standard agreement can be obtained at the OFCC website at http://ofcc.ohio.gov.
