School Procurement Management And Oversight, Program Of Architectural Requirements, And Program Management

In 2015 B&D was selected as the project manager for the joint Bridges Public Charter School and Briya Public Charter School Mamie D. Lee facility modernization. The modernization required demolition of three-quarters of the existing building, re-grading of the site, and two additions: one three-story building for Bridges PCS and one two-story building to house Briya PCS on the first floor and the Mary’s Center health clinic on the second floor. We worked closely with each school’s leadership to develop an architectural program of spaces with space sheets detailing room layouts, specialized equipment, and finishes. We were responsible for assisting with contract negotiations and design reviews, developing and maintaining the project schedule, coordinating the permitting process, providing construction administration, tracking the project budget, and procuring various subcontracts for utilities and services required for a major renovation project. Additionally, we coordinated with the Mary’s Center project team as it developed and implemented its tenant fit-out on the second floor of the new addition. The Bridges and Briya modernations were completed in the summer of 2016.
