Project Overview

Tahoma School District hand selected OAC for program and project management services on their 2013 Bond program. OAC’s selection was based on recommendations from other local school districts, and stems from our expertise in alternative delivery methods and in customer service.

OAC’s first task was to engage the District staff in discussions regarding delivery methods for the anchor project to the bond, a 315,000 sq. ft. high school and regional learning center. Past projects in the District completed with a traditional design-bid-build contracting method had not gone well. The District was interested in a GC/CM delivery method for the new facility. OAC listened to their concerns and evaluated the project elements before providing our concurrence with that approach. We led the process of obtaining PRC approval and GC/CM selection. An additional early task was the negotiation of the contract with the project architect.

In addition to the new Tahoma High School, the program also includes a major modernization and addition to the Lake Wilderness Elementary School, modernization at 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 OSPI’s School Construction Assistance program, the Capital Projects Program at TSD totals $215M.

OAC’s program role includes development and management of budgets for all projects, development and control of the master program schedule, coordination with District departments, assistance to the District on property acquisition, development and execution of the FF&E procurement plan, development of relocation plans, and reporting to the school board on a regular basis. In addition, OAC will be performing project management services on the individual projects noted above. At present, only the high school project is in progress.
