Construction Solutions Group Awarded Contract for New Lebanon Elementary School in Greenwich
December 20th, 2017
Greenwich Public Schools has selected Construction Solutions Group (CSG) to perform Clerk of the Works services, overseeing the demolition of the existing and construction of the New Lebanon Elementary School.
Demolition and site work for the new 62,000 sf two-story school will begin this year and the project is slated for occupancy in early 2019. The school serves the west side of Greenwich, and will create much needed space for the students who are currently overcrowded. The goal of the project is to create a technologically advanced, energy efficient school, achieving U.S. Green Building Council LEED Gold standards.
CSG began work on this project this month and will provide support to the buildings and facilities manager to administer the new construction, working in cooperation with Greenwich Public Schools and Town Officials, as well as the contracted Architect, Tai Soo Kim Partners Architects, and Construction Manager, Gilbane Building Company.
As Clerk of the Works, CSG is responsible for providing comprehensive oversight from the preliminary design phase through close out, ensuring that the project is managed judiciously and maintains complete reimbursement eligibility.
CSG’s Vice President, Chris Cykley will serve as project director.
CSG is presently working for the nearby City of Norwalk, overseeing City-wide school renovations and additions needed to accommodate 900 additional students districtwide. After a comprehensive study reviewing projected student enrollment, neighborhood population changes and existing capacity yields, four schools were selected based on location and expansion feasibility. Work on these projects began in the Fall of 2017.
“We are excited to take on another project in southwest Connecticut,” says Cykley. “We look forward to working closely the Greenwich Public Schools and the Board of Education on what will be an outstanding and much needed project for the community.”
