Challenge – This ground-up project was originally competitively bid, came in significantly over budget, and was in jeopardy of missing opening the following season for students due to heavy redesign
Solution – Fiorilli was called in late summer of 2017 to achieve the desired GMP via a negotiated open book process with design assist from mechanical, electrical, plumbing, site, and structural framing trades
Results – The project was delivered in less than 12 months, under roof before winter to avoid escalation costs, and completed on time and on budget
The Bradley Building:
Challenge – The mixed-use building was undergoing a major interior renovation to convert existing office and apartment spaces into contemporary loft-style residential and retail/commercial units. Originally being managed by the building staff, the project was falling behind schedule and in jeopardy of missing key dates for delivery of new units to market.
Solution – Fiorilli was hired as Owners Representative to create a master project schedule and provide site Supervision to oversee the day-to-day construction operations, safety, material procurement and quality.
Results – The project was completed in 21-weeks and met all leasing go-to-market delivery dates.
Gravity Place PRECON Services:
Challenge – The developer needed a creative construction partner to help with due
diligence cost analysis of a challenging site that required special expertise in riverbed
piers and Army Corp coordination for overall cost analysis & feasibility
Solution – Fiorilli provided due diligence resources for site feasibility and analysis of
various deep helical piers and tiebacks at the river bulkhead to forecast costing for site
Results – The best value engineering necessary at the onset was vital so the Developer did
not waste soft cost expenditures prematurely and it was determined the project was not
viable for the market rate fee simple unit complex that was envisioned.
East College Street:
Challenge – The project was designed to achieve a LEED Neighborhood Gold status, with lavish systems and site amenities. When competitively bid it was 30% over budget and in jeopardy of stalling with looming financial closing deadlines and covenants to meet.
Solution – Fiorilli was asked to come in and take over the project in a negotiated open book GMP, and value engineering via design build MEP’s.
Results – In 2 months Fiorilli negotiated all major trade contracts and the project was back on track and on budget for commencement as scheduled. No atheistic design square footage, elevations, or site amenities were sacrificed.
Brad Friedel’s Soccer Academy:
Challenge – A competitively bid project that was 20% over budget.
Solution – Fiorilli knew there would be financial challenges at the onset and offered voluntary value engineering solutions upon bid presentation in excess of $1,000,000, the majority of which were implemented into the project.
Results – The project was made financially viable via our value engineering and we also successfully rephased the project into 3 phases vs 1 originally envisioned by the developer (Field house, Academy, dedicated road) in order to generate operating income earlier in the construction process.
University Place Townhomes:
Challenge – Consolidate 5 lots into 19 fee simple town homes on a 1/2 acre site with no laydown areas, and a phased sequencing due to financial covenants while maintaining original critical path GMP
Solution – Fiorilli orchestrated negotiated subcontracts to control potential phasing changes of clusters of units as sold, and cold dark shell releases while also creating a buyer’s guide for buyer’s releases.
Results – The entire project was completed in 12 phases over a 14 month period to full occupancy. The original spec home arrangement morphed into custom built-to-suits buyers guide that Fiorilli created & managed to expedite sales in a challenging market.
Cleveland State University:
Challenge – Build a 5 story extension to the main campus classrooms with an elevator at an intersection that has one sidewalk width of logistical area and a main artery for pedestrian student traffic through the project that could not be rerouted, over the main utility bank to CSU, and including EDGE participation.
Solution – Fiorilli prepared traffic study analysis and logistical planning to allow for proper sequencing of construction activities both off-hours and around student pedestrian traffic patterns, as well as unique safety solutions during construction.
Results – Project completed on time, zero safety incidents reported, and no interruption to student pedestrian traffic flow the entire course of the project.
The Greens at Belden:
Challenge – Convert an entire golf course into a mixed use complex with TIF and JEDD covenants in less than a year from LOI to closing
Solution – Once engaged, Fiorilli took the point as CM to coordinate 34 various municipal, governmental, and financial approvals and agreement covenants for the developer in order to keep purchase agreements in place and on track with 6 major players.
Results – The project due diligence began in July of 2018 and is currently on track to break ground in Winter of 2019 ,with full permitting of all horizontal and utility work including County, dedicated roadways on/off site, ODOT, TIF, and JEDD approvals required.
