SLAM CS was retained by Red Bank Catholic High School in Red Bank, New Jersey to serve as the owner’s representative for the pre-construction phase of the new 24,000-SF athletics facility designed to expand the athletics programs and promote wellness. The building includes a new 10,000-SF, double cross-court gymnasium, with bleacher seating for over 800 people. The main court can host basketball, volleyball, gymnastics, and wrestling events, and the cross-courts and curtain divider offer flexibility for various age-appropriate functions. A state-of-the-art Fitness Center is located on the upper floor, overlooking the gymnasium, and can be seen from the exterior of the building to promote fitness to all students.
Our services included scheduling, cost estimating, budget reconciliation, constructability reviews, analysis of LEED Silver implementation and the development of the RFQ/P for the CM shortlist, interviews and selection. As the owner’s representative, we attended the design meetings with the architect of record and the Owner. Our responsibilities also included value engineering recommendations and the structure of separate bid packages.
