This was the largest capital project in District history
Greece Central School District hired Campus CMG to complete their largest capital construction project in district history. The project spanned the district’s 20 schools over the course of four years, bringing them up to date with New York State Learning Standards, technology and telecommunications.
Providing full program and construction management services, Campus CMG played a significant role in moving the project forward; assisting them through the referendum and with the architect/engineer selection process.
The project addressed school/ community space which included new classrooms, multi-purpose rooms, storage, fields, gymnasium, auditorium renovations, technology and telecommunications upgrades, infrastructure repairs, roadways/paving and landscaping, and general renovations.
Significant additions and renovations have been made to 14 elementary schools, 3 middle schools and 4 high schools. Main entrances to each building received security and appearance enhancements. Each school and program remained functional throughout the construction phases. Work at the Odyssey Middle School included careful restoration to maintain the architectural integrity of the 1920s building.
A major component of the project is the construction of a Performing Arts Center with seating capacity for almost 1,650 at Athena Middle/High School. To maximize the auditorium’s capacity without adding to the dimensions of the designed space, a 500-seat balcony was included.
Groundbreaking ceremonies were held on June 14, 2001 at the Buckman Heights Elementary School. This building experienced a fire bombing in May 2001 and required major repairs. The scope of work included extensive asbestos abatement, interior demolition, roof replacement, and new plumbing, heating and electric throughout the building. In addition, Campus CMG completed three additions at Buckman Heights. The fire accelerated the 2,000 SF office addition which was completed within a three month schedule. The other two additions included a 2,600 SF gymnasium and a 2,000 SF library. Campus CMG facilitated the opening of Buckman Heights in September 2001. Visit our client at www.greece.k12.ny.us
