ASRC SKW Eskimos, (ASKW) the Bering Strait School District to manage a design-assist renovation of the 30-year-old one-room K-12 schoolhouse in the remote Alaska village of Shaktoolik.
ASKW joined at the 35% documentation level. The scope of work included extensive renovation and upgrade of several failing systems. Improvements included floor layout and expansion, plumbing and electrical, distribution and lighting, ceiling and interior surfaces, roof and exterior siding, kitchen and utilities. The contract included a final conversion to a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP). Facing a budget deficit, the District had re-solicited for a second round of bidding with reduced work scope. With almost no room for contingency in the budget upon award, the team conducted an in-depth analysis of design to identify areas to add value, reduce risk and solve a variety of notable challenges prior to construction. With sufficient time and attention invested to details, the project was highly successful. Near completion, BSSD secured additional funding that added significant scope to the contract.
