Saving costs where it matters most. Making an impact in our communities. That’s the H.R. Gray way.
AKRON, OHIO – Ronald McDonald House of Akron participated in a fundraising campaign in order to raise funds to renovate and expand their existing House in the City of Akron. The current house is over thirty years old and was completed renovated and expanded in order to be modernized and to meet the increasing demand for their services. The project entails a new three-story addition while the current house is fully functional. An additional 42 rooms were added to the facility.
The Ronald McDonald House in partnership with Akron Children’s Hospital awarded H.R. Gray a contract for Owner’s Representative Services. H.R. Gray was tasked with developing the RFP for the Construction Manager-At-Risk. We provided budget and schedule control throughout the project. During design, H.R. Gray provided owner’s representative services that include cost estimates, design reviews and coordination, and constructability reviews. H.R. Gray also provided quality assurance to the Owner during the construction and post-construction phase.
Given the nature of the services that the Ronald McDonald House provides to local families, H.R. Gray coordinated an effort in order to obtain donated materials and services from local and national organizations. This service provides cost-savings to the project in order to meet the goals of Ronald McDonald House during the expansion.
