"It has been a pleasure to be the Owner’s Representative for the Chelsea Intermediate School Addition and Renovation project. Since our team was engaged early in the design process, we were able to be an advocate for the Owner, making sure their program needs were being met as the design further developed. It’s been especially rewarding for me to help the school’s administrative team navigate the entire project process since this District has not had a construction project of this magnitude in years."
Frankfort Community Consolidated School District 157-C
Frankfort Community Consolidated School District (Frankfort CCSD 157-C) is comprised of Grand Prairie Elementary, Chelsea Intermediate School, and Hickory Creek Middle School serving students in the Frankfort, Illinois community. In early 2021, Cotter was retained to provide owners representative services for a new addition at Chelsea Intermediate School. The project includes renovations of existing classrooms and learning spaces, and the relocation of Media, STEM, and Special Education spaces, to improve the existing circulation challenges that the school experiences. Enabling site work and utility upgrades were completed in the summer, 2021. Construction for the addition began in Spring 2022, with renovation work happening both the Summer of 2022 and 2023. The entire project is scheduled to complete August 2023. Cotter is providing the Frankfort CCSD 157-C with Owner’s Representative services during all stages of the project including monthly project reporting, budget management, schedule management, team management, board and community meetings, and project delivery strategy.
