Owner’s Representative Role: MCP assumed the role of Owner’s Representative, collaborating closely with Washington Township on the planning and conceptual design of their new township building. This involved hands-on coordination with the design team from Farnsworth.
Comprehensive Construction Management: As the appointed construction manager, MCP took charge of all pre-construction and procurement services. This encompassed the bidding process for nine (9) distinct bid packages, each contributing to the overall construction of the new township building.
Building Features and Design: The building’s features included a garage and service area equipped with five (5) large overhead doors. Additionally, the structure housed a break room and office area, strategically designed to double as a storm shelter when needed. The construction of the building itself employed a wood post-frame building approach, ensuring durability and efficiency in the project’s execution.
Site Improvements and Utilities: Beyond the building, MCP managed the implementation of new site improvements, involving the creation of a new parking lot and site utilities. These enhancements aimed to not only accommodate the immediate needs of the township but also contribute to the overall functionality and accessibility of the facility.
The Washington Township New Building project exemplifies MCP’s capability to seamlessly transition from an Owner’s Representative role to a Construction Manager, ensuring a collaborative approach with both the client and the design team. The focus on comprehensive pre-construction and procurement services, along with the efficient handling of bid packages, resulted in the successful construction of a functional and resilient township building.
