St. Joseph MotherhouseCleveland, Ohio Market: Assisted Living
To Be Completed: August 2018
St. Joseph Motherhouse is a new two-story assisted living facility which includes 32 residential units. Bell & Blaire provided extensive preconstruction services and value engineering strategies to provide the client with cost savings. The Mechanical equipment (HVAC & Plumbing) was changed to alternate manufacturers who provided the same quality and efficiency at a lower cost. All the pipe, valves, and fittings on each discipline (HVAC & Plumbing) were changed to a more labor friendly material which resulted in a lower construction budget. Our skilled team also used BIM to coordinate with other trades. Throughout the entire pre-construction phase our team developed a unique construction plan to lower client cost and maximize lean construction principles resulting in efficiency and increased productivity.
