Applying construction knowledge to a comprehensive constructability review to leads to better bid pricing and buildability.

A new $110 million, four-story facility that supports the construction, maintenance and utility programs, OCMI’s work began with a complete constructability review of this new ground up facility. Our team was provided with 800+ sheets with a four-week timeline. We successfully completed phase I of the task order and delivered over 1,000 comments to the District and Design team for review. After reviewing our findings with the District, a backcheck review was performed and delivered for final approval.

Shortly after this work was completed, the District requested our services again to complete a 100% CD cost estimate. The District and design team were so satisfied with our work, HMC Architects asked us to perform an equipment review at the existing site.

Phase 1: Evaluated existing inventory lists and provided review for replacement and pricing for each piece, along with information sheets for all.

Phase 2: During this phase, OCMI provided equipment estimates for District approved equipment (approximately 200+ line items from DSA drawings) and developed item specifications. We also worked with the District to review customized teaching stations and tools and responded to RFIs.
