Project Description

After releasing the original architect, Redwoods Community College District retained Nichols, Melburg & Rossetto to value engineer and administer the project through bidding, construction, and acquisition of furnishings. NMR revised many of the project materials and redesigned in order to provide better climatic performance, less maintenance and more economical construction.

NMR’s familiarity with the North State construction industry also assured greater interest on the part of general contractors resulting in a low bid that was over $1,000,000 below the project budget. Construction was able to progress on time and within budget due mainly to the close cooperation between project manager, architect, general contractor, and inspectors.
