Erving Elementary School
Erving, Massachusetts

Dore + Whittier was retained by the Regional School Union to provide Owner's Project Management (OPM) services for the $5.5M renovation and addition for this 200-student, grade PK-6 school. Dore + Whittier was also the Architect on this project. (Prior to 2005, Massachusetts General Laws allowed such a scenario.) This was a phased renovation project that was carefully planned so as to not disrupt ongoing educational operations. Once completed, the school's 47,000 square feet included a separate cafeteria and gymnasium that replaced a single, multi-use space. New Pre-K classrooms were added and all the infrastructure, systems, and building finishes were comprehensively renovated. The project was completed ahead of schedule and on budget.

DWMP provided a full range of Owner’s Project Management services, including:

  • Budget reporting for Owner and third-party interests
  • Full-time, on-site Project Manager
  • Quality control
  • Project meeting and record keeping
  • Schedule management
  • Coordinated Owner-provided testing and other services
  • Review of change orders
  • Review of all payment application
  • Punchlist management
  • Warranties/training coordination
  • FF&E procurement/coordination
  • Owner move in
