High School Construction

Mr. Von Gunten
Our construction process continues:
 
Firelands Local Schools and the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC) jointly selected BSHM as the architectural firm to design our new high school. BSHM will also be working with Clark and Post Architects (based in Lorain, OH) on our project. BSHM has been in practice since 1962 and has vast experience working with and designing educational structures. 
 
The construction manager at risk and commissioning agent have also been appointed. While there are multiple delivery options available to public entities, the construction manager at risk model was chosen by our Board of Education. The firm will be immediately involved in the design of our new high school which will help ensure our project remains within budget and on schedule. A commissioning agent is required by the OFCC and acts as a checks and balance process for the district and our taxpayers. Commissioning agents have extensive technical background and High School Construction Meetings Underway expertise with verification techniques, functional performance testing, system equipment and operations and maintenance knowledge. 
 
Educational visioning is complete! Through conversations with our staff, students, parents and community, we have discussed our vision for education in Firelands and how our new high school will support that vision. The input gathered will be used as the design phase begins.
 
As a reminder, please visit our “construction update” tab on the district’s website for current information on our building project or feel free to contact me with your questions or concerns regarding the construction of our new Firelands High School.
