Construction Manager at Risk
LEED Silver Registration
Cleveland School of the Arts
R.L.Bowen Construction Management partnered with AMHigley to perform as Construction Manager at Risk for the construction of Cleveland Metropolitan School Districtís Cleveland School of the Arts. The new school is built on the previous school site and houses 775 students in grades 6 through 12.
With the incorporation of many unique design features, it was a constructability challenge from the beginning. We got off to a 2-month-late start due to permitting delays associated with the site being located in a flood plain. In turn, this required redesign (removal of basement) during the bidding/buy-out phase of the project. As CM at Risk, Bowen was responsible for Project Management and Executive Project Management.
Construction was completed on-time for student occupation in the fall of 2015.
The architect for the school is Moody Nolan.
