“A.P. utilized meetings, meeting minutes and formal discussions to solve all potential and existing problems on the job. They responded to us in a very expedient fashion and identified specific items in need of attention to make the job progress smoothly. They did a great job working around our class schedules and events while constructing our outstanding science wing!”

Project Description:

  • Construction of a two-story, out-of-the-ground classroom and science lab addition with a basement. The 60-foot square building was constructed in the available 100-foot square area.
  • The science classroom featured custom laboratory furniture and science equipment. A design technology classroom featured extensive data systems and audio/visual systems.
  • Sustainable features included rooftop photo voltaic panels which will provide 8,640 watts of 120-volt power.
  • The permitting process took longer than expected, causing steel and other materials to arrive and require storage before the building permit was received.
  • Unsuitable soils and a high ground-water level were discovered within the building footprint. The site required that we maintain a 30 gallon/minute underground water pump while a slab drainage system was installed. A.P. Construction identified this ground-water issue and assisted the design team in developing options and budgets for waterproofing systems.
  • Due to the installation of a deep storm line which cut off access to several buildings, the fire marshal required the construction of a temporary access road. Despite this and additional site work delays, building construction was completed on time and under budget.
  • Construction management services included: budgeting, value engineering, subcontractor bid and award, safety and logistical planning, pre-purchase program, scheduling and construction.
