Project Overview

The Tahoma School District selected OAC to provide program and project management services on their 2013 Bond program. The District chose OAC based on recommendations from other local school districts, and due to alternative delivery method expertise.

OAC’s first task was to help the District determine potential delivery methods for the bond’s anchor project – a 315,000-square-foot high school and regional learning center. Previous District projects completed with a traditional design-bid-build contracting method experienced issues and the District expressed an interest in delivering the new high school with the General Contractor/Construction Management (GC/CM) method. After providing an evaluation of project elements, OAC led the process of obtaining approval from the State’s Project Review Committee (PRC) to utilize a GC/CM contracting method, as well as negotiating the contract with the project architect.

In addition to the new Tahoma High School, the 2013 Bond program also includes a major modernization and addition to Lake Wilderness Elementary School; modernizations of Rock Creek, Shadow Lake, and Glacier Park Elementary schools; modernization of Cedar River Middle School; and the renovation of the existing high school to accommodate a junior high school program. With assistance from the State’s Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction School Construction Assistance program, the bond program totals approximately $215 million.

OAC is developing and managing budgets for all projects, developing and coordinating the master program schedule, coordinating with District departments, assisting the District with property acquisition, developing and executing the fixture, furniture and equipment (FF&E) procurement plan, developing relocation plans, and regularly reporting to the school board. OAC is providing project management services for each of the school projects.
