Role

Construction Manager At Risk

International Contractors, Inc. was hired as New Lenox School District 122’s Construction Manager in early 2012. Our relationship with the District commenced with an interior retrofit of the lower level of Oster Oakview School.

ICI worked throughout the summer of 2012 to successfully complete the 8,000 SF retrofit. The office and classroom spaces, located underneath the school’s gymnasium, provided several challenges for the project team. Unforeseen conditions arose on multiple occasions and constant communication among the team was required to ensure project success.

Several of the issues that arose required structural modifications or adjustments to the mechanical systems and needed resolution within 24 hours. These problems were mitigated due to the immediate response of the team and the project opened in time for teachers and students returning to the school in early fall 2012.
