at Risk Case Study
Arcade, GA New City Hall and Public Safety Renovation
The project consisted of the ground-up construction of a new 10,000 square foot city hall facility and the renovation and enlargement of the existing public safety facility. During the initial preconstruction phase, the team worked tirelessly to bring the project in budget and pushed hard to maintain the original project schedule promised to the city. Over the course of the year working together, Blue River and City of Arcade personnel became close friends. Jonathan and Barbara Kesler remain close to this day.
Our Construction Management provided beneficial cost savings
The project required a creative approach during the pre-construction phase to meet the city’s budgetary requirements. By adjusting grades to accomplish a level site requiring zero cut and fill, the grading costs were minimized, and the project maintained its program. Although the result of this adjustment required that the City Hall sit slightly below the existing grades of the public safety building, the cost savings were beneficial to the client and allowed the team to bring the project in on the extremely tight budget of $120.00 per square foot.
