The new 198,000 SF Hickory Creek Middle School is situated on 30 acres of land. The school offers classroom space for 1,050 students and has an additional growth capacity of 1,300.
Because of ICI’s long standing relationship with the District, our team was intimately aware of the District’s needs, thus making ICI an integral part of the programming and design team.
During the programming phase, ICI introduced a Design/Build HVAC Bid Package in order to engage the awarded trade contractor early in the design process. Because they were responsible for design, construction and a 5-year service contract for the HVAC system, the awarded contractor took great care to design an exceptional system.
During pre-construction, ICI focused on constructability, system analysis and scheduling. Because of our focus on client needs and our ability to partner with the Design Team, the District’s ambitious quality, cost and scheduling goals were attained.
This project was completed two months ahead of schedule and almost $1,000,000 under the original construction budget.
The reduction in schedule allowed District staff ample time to move in and prepare their rooms prior to the first day of school.
