Ottawa Elementary School

Richard L. Bowen + Associates provided a full complement of construction management services for this new building on a greenfield site. A sister project to Glandorf Elementary, the school houses grades PK through 5 and includes a gymnasium, academic spaces, food service, and administrative and specialty spaces. Construction is truss roof on cavity wall, primarily single-story. A flat site necessitated special drainage considerations.

The Constructability Review process included reviews at Schematic Design, Design Development and Construction Document phases, plus proprietary analysis of the Construction Documents. The review revealed that there was a significant difference between the original program and the resulting floor plan which was subsequently resolved. Constructability comments from this project helped expedite the process on Glandorf Elementary which followed a few weeks later.
