Magnolia Public Schools selected Gafcon in 2017 to provide construction management services for the construction of a new 6,509 SF gymnasium at Magnolia Science Academy in Santa Ana, CA. The project provides much needed recreational space, food services, and an expanded outdoor area for the student body.
To meet the client’s tight schedule, Gafcon had a seven-week period to prepare bid documents, perform contractor outreach, and award the project. The team met their deadlines by developing a detailed schedule of activities, and working closely with the client, architect, contract, and the Health Department to make sure all tasks were completed on time.
Gafcon also ensured Magnolia Public Schools met their budget and program requirements. Working with the client and project team, Gafcon explored value engineering options, saving the client approximately $130K, which then provided a budget for the gymnasium flooring. The Gafcon team also completed diligent review of contractor change order requests, saving the client approximately 15% in contingency budget. The successful collaboration with Magnolia Public Schools and project team ensured the project was brought in on time and under budget.
