The ground up 198,000 square foot Hickory Creek Middle School is situated on 30 acres of land in Frankfort, Illinois. The school offers classroom space for 1,050 students and has an 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 preconstruction phases.
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.
The school was completed two months ahead of schedule and almost $1,000,000.00 under the original construction budget. The reduction in schedule allowed District staff ample time to move in and prepare their classrooms prior to the first day of school.
