North Royalton City Schools Selects Hammond Construction, Inc. as Construction Manager at Risk of Facilities Project
North Royalton City Schools shortlisted and interviewed firms interested in serving as its Construction Manager at Risk. Each shortlisted team was evaluated through the state’s “Best Value Rating Form.” Upon completion of the selection process, the chosen firm not only scored highest on their qualifications, but also provides the best value in its proposed fees to the district. Hammond Construction, based out of Canton, Ohio, was selected to serve North Royalton for all of its capital improvement projects. This was made official at the September 11 North Royalton Board of Education meeting. Hammond has extensive experience building schools and provides a strong team of construction professionals that will lead the project.
“Hammond Construction is honored to be a part of the team to transform and rebuild North Royalton City Schools. Hammond is a construction manager who specializes in the K-12 market, having managed nearly $2 billion in school construction projects over the last 17 years. Our team is ready and committed to building high quality schools that will benefit the North Royalton students and be sources of pride for the community,” said President Bill Schurman, Hammond Construction, Inc. “Community and staff engagement will be a key component of the success of this project.”
Construction management at risk or “CMR” is the most prevalent construction delivery method utilized by schools in the State of Ohio. The term “at risk” comes from the responsibility of the CMR to hold all of the construction contracts rather than the school district. The CMR, Hammond Construction, will be heavily involved in the design process to assist with pre-construction services including cost estimating, scheduling, alternative methods of construction and site logistics planning.
With the selection of Hammond Construction, Inc. as CMR and ThenDesign (TDA) Architecture as the architect, North Royalton City Schools looks forward to commencing on the planning and designs to build better schools for its community.
“Throughout this exciting process, the district, along with the design and construction team, is committed to engaging our community and keeping them apprised of the positive steps we are taking towards making this project a success,” said Superintendent Greg Gurka, North Royalton City Schools.
