Project Description: This project is the first building on the new campus of the Bluegrass Community & Technical College in Lexington. An example of infill redevelopment, the building is leading the transformation of a long-neglected neighborhood whose location also makes it a gateway into the city. The Newtown Classroom Building is one of only six Gold-certified LEED buildings in Lexington, and the first LEED-certified building in the Kentucky Community and Technical College System. It also was recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy as part of the Better Buildings Challenge. In addition to the new 92,400 sq. ft. classroom building, demolition of more than 400,000 sq. ft. of existing buildings were completed, and site preparation was done to prepare the land to be repurposed for the new campus.
Firm Role: : As construction manager at risk, Congleton-Hacker provided preconstruction services including master project phasing, critical path scheduling, conceptual estimating, value engineering, bid package definition and special conditions preparation. Construction phase services included overall responsibility for all aspects of project schedule, bidding, construction, coordination of all trade contractors and management of master construction budget.
