Foreman Program and Construction Managers (FPCM) is proud to be named the construction management (CM) firm for Wilkinsburg School District’s elementary school renovation plan. Late 2016, CEO Phillip Foreman received word that FPCM will be managing construction services for Kelly and Turner Elementary Schools. The improvements, designed by architect RC Pierce and Associates of Pittsburgh, PA, will make the learning environments at these two schools more competitive.
During the summer of 2016, the Wilkinsburg School Board submitted drawings for the renovations to Wilkinsburg Borough. This fall, the School Board reviewed RFPs from various CM companies. FPCM met with Wilkinsburg’s Interim Director of Facilities, John Frombach to learn more about the specifics required of the work before submitting a proposal. A few days after being one of several firms submitting qualifications, Mr. Foreman received a call from the school district, informing him FPCM would be awarded the contract.
Renovations to both schools include upgraded building systems such as HVAC, plumbing, lighting, and safety/security technology; as well as exterior renovations and ADA improvements. Construction will be completed in phases to minimize impact of the work during the school year. Construction schedule is being determined.
