The School District of Palm Beach (Fla.) County awarded Suffolk Construction the Construction Management at Risk Services for the Rosenwald Elementary School Modernization project.

The anticipated 40,776-sf school, located in the western community of South Bay, Fla., will undergo a complete modernization to the existing 314 student stations. Project scope includes the demolition of multiple buildings dating back as far as 1951 followed by extensive site demucking during the first phase before the new construction can begin.

The new construction will consist of exceptionally efficient exterior building envelop and roofing system, as well as mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems all meeting the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED silver certification requirements. Additionally, at the District’s request, given their long standing support of sustainability efforts, Suffolk is currently providing a complete analysis of the potential cost considerations needed to reach the LEED Platinum level of certification.

In order to streamline and enhance construction of the new buildings, Suffolk in collaboration with the design team, is implementing virtual modeling technologies through Building Information Modeling (BIM) early into the preconstruction effort allowing more predictability of the schedule and adding value to the School District.

The project, designed by Song + Associates, Inc., is expected to be completed during the summer of 2014, well ahead of the approaching school year. +
