Need:
The City of Cincinnati funded the improvements to the training facilities of the Cincinnati Bengals in order to maintain their successful ways. This addition was completed a year after their 1988 Super Bowl appearance.

Contractor Selection:
CM-GC was selected through a competitive evaluation process based on quality, cost and schedule compliance.

Project:
This site was a 5 acre development located along the Eighth St. overpass on the west side of town and included existing building renovations, a 28,000 square foot building addition and miscellaneous reconstruction of several athletic fields to complete the training facility. The two story addition included team conference rooms, staff offices, a new locker room and training facilities.

Special Considerations:
The existing soil conditions were discovered to be virtually equivalent to quick sand. As a result, CM-GC worked integrally with Structural and Civil Engineers to design a floating raft foundation system. This floating mat was 30” deep with significant reinforcing.

Critical Timing:
The construction contract was awarded early in the year of 1989, with a strict completion deadline of that August to allow training camp to begin on time.

Results:
The project was completed on time despite several unforeseen and unavoidable existing conditions, and CM-GC has maintained a continuing working relationship with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Need:
A local family, who owned four manufacturing and distribution businesses, previously operating independently, desired to consolidate operations at one location to maximize productivity and efficiency.

Contractor Selection:
The Owner’s selection board interviewed several leading construction companies. CM-GC was selected based upon their design presentation, comprehensive estimating services and overall construction experience.

Project:
This 10-acre site development is in an upscale office research and industrial park. The building includes a 100,000 square foot manufacturing facility with a 12,000 square foot mezzanine and a 20,000 square foot appended office. CM-GC generated the building design to present to the Industrial Park's Design Review Committee for approval. CM-GC also worked with the owner’s architect to develop working drawings with specs and then completed construction of the Project.

Special Considerations:
CM-GC worked with the owners on this project from the initial negotiations on site acquisition, to securing financial incentives from the city and the state, through building and site design development. CM-GC also worked closely with Woolpert LLP on final site design.

Soils were discovered to be unstable. As a result, an average of 8 feet, over 75,000 cubic yards, had to be excavated then replaced in 12” lifts, with the top layer requiring a lime mixture to obtain a suitable bearing capacity.

Critical Timing:
The construction contract was awarded early in the year of 1989, with a strict completion deadline of that August to allow training camp to begin on time.

Results:
The project was completed on time despite several unforeseen and unavoidable existing conditions, and CM-GC has maintained a continuing working relationship with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Kenwood Country Club

Need:
Due to growing membership, this local, premier private country club needed to expand its existing facilities. Members voted for a multi-million dollar renovation and addition to the club in favor of building a new clubhouse in place of the existing.

Contractor Selection:
The country club board selectively interviewed and received competitive bids from several pre-qualified construction management firms. CM-GC’s cost effective and proven management skills, design and value-engineering capability were important factors in the selection decision. Upon award, CM-GC became involved with the project’s design development.

Project Phase 1:
Phase 1 included major renovations of several important focal spaces of the club which included opening up a two story entry foyer with the installation of an elevator. Renovations were also completed for two formal meeting/dining rooms and the Ball Room. 

Critical Timing:
Phase 1 construction had to be completed during the three winter months the club routinely shuts down, necessitating a tight completion schedule. Phase 1 was completed on time and allowed CM-GC to begin focusing their efforts on the completion of Phase 2.

Project Phase 2:
Phase 2 of the Kenwood Country Club 2000 Project, depicted in the rendering above, and entailed a 17,000 square foot addition. This addition features a new foyer entry off of the spacious new mixed grill and bar area with outside patio. The addition also includes improved kitchen facilities, enlarged administrative offices, a state of the art pro shop and a complete cart barn storage level.
