Consolidated CM (CCM) specializes in the construction of education-related facilities, and in the last ten years, we have managed more than $1 billion of college and university construction. CCM provides program, project and construction management as well as individual services such as scheduling, inspector of record, and claims analysis support. Because of the depth of our education experience, we can supply planning and construction expertise for virtually any type of campus project whether it involves new construction or renovation. Our specific project experience includes administration buildings, classrooms, student housing, laboratories, gymnasiums, child care facilities, student unions, upgrades to central plants or co-generation facilities and replacement and improvement to general campus infrastructure.

CCM understands the sensitivities of working on a busy campus, and can help mitigate potential construction impacts by assisting during the design stage with technical support and by promoting a controlled but inclusive environment so key project constituencies can embrace the process. CCM' s work continues with expert construction management and inspection assistance until a successful completion and occupancy is achieved. Whether it is a new central plant, a library, or a parking structure, we can help. CCM also has on staff inspectors certified by the Department of the State Architect (DSA) and can provide DSA-certified inspector of record services when required.

CSU East Bay Valley Business and Technology Center
CCM served as the project and construction manager, and provided inspector of record services on this new $23 million high-tech center. The four-story, 64,000-square-foot, steel-frame building houses two presentation centers and a number of computer laboratory facilities. The project was funded by state bond funds and donor contributions with hard sunset dates. At one critical point facing an impending funding deadline, CCM staff flew to Los Angeles with design drawings in hand to meet with DSA reviewers, resolve outstanding review comments, and obtain a set of approved drawings, thereby keeping the project on track. CCM successfully marketed the multi-prime project, assisted with the award process, and oversaw construction. CCM also managed the various contract packages, coordinated interfaces, and assisted with start-up, commissioning, FF&E and occupancy.
SFSU Housing & Guest Center
CCM managed and inspected the 2004 rehabilitation of this structure originally built in 1988, before the Loma Prieta earthquake. The facility consisted of two buildings – a 17-story apartment tower and a six-story campus guest center – connected by a lobby that housed conference rooms, a snack bar, and an entertainment center. New building codes and an engineering review of the seismic interaction between the buildings resulted in the need for 215 micro piles placed through the floor slab. In addition, the buildings were completely shrink-wrapped to contain airborne contamination from mold-invested walls. While this project was under construction, the University decided to redo the IT system and upgrade it to Category 5 cabling and Wi-Fi access, which Consolidated CM also managed as a concurrent project with a separate contractor. On this project, CCM also planned and managed the FF&E procurement, move in, occupancy, and commissioning. The projects were successfully completed on time and within budget.
CSU-Chico Bell Memorial Union
The Bell Memorial Union, a 1940' s vintage student union, was completely renovated, abated of asbestos and heavy metals, and expanded to include a new three-story bookstore and administrative building and a new theater. CCM managed the $30 million project from design through construction and occupancy. Though a pre-LEED era project, it was notable for its emphasis on the recycling of used building materials. Several aspects of this project required special consideration due to the campus site. Before construction began, the University police station and the campus 911 system were relocated. Extensive safety precautions were established to maintain the remaining operations of the student union during construction. To minimize pile-driving noises for the general campus area, Geo Piles were used to support foundations for the new buildings. Due to lack of lay down space on the campus, structural steel shipments were marshaled outside of the campus area and then scheduled for unloading by sequence.
Ohlone College Hyman Hall
CCM managed the design and construction of the new $18 million Ohlone College state-of-the-art computer center, a three-story, steel-framed structure with computer labs, classrooms, offices, and administrative areas. Laboratory areas incorporated raised floors to facilitate wiring reconfigurations and room layout revisions, maximizing future flexibility. A DSA-approved independent inspector of record (IOR) oversaw building code compliance, as is required for construction on a community college campus. As part of CCM' s typical construction management approach to facilitate communication and team building, CCM provided the IOR and all project stakeholders with access to the firm' s proprietary construction management website, including project documentation and quality assurance reports.
Cal Poly Pomona Engineering Building
This new $35 million facility was designed to consolidate the University’s Engineering School in a single location, replacing several existing buildings. Phase I, completed under a traditional design-bid-build delivery system, included hazardous materials abatement and demolition of the old engineering building and associated structures to make room for the new 100,000-square-foot building. Phase II, completed with a design-build project delivery approach, involved construction of the new engineering laboratory building. During the pre-bid phase, CCM assisted with the development of a pre-qualification process for the design-build teams and supported the University during bid award. During the design, CCM provided design management support services, including constructability reviews, value engineering, scheduling, and estimating. Once work began in the field, CCM provided contract administration, resident engineering, and inspector of record support.
CSU San Marcos Kellogg Library
The Kellogg Library is the most prominent structure on the California State University San Marcos campus with a footprint of approximately 199,139 gross square feet not including multi-story airspaces. The library is a five-story, steel-framed structure with the first level and east side of the second level buried into the hillside. It features approximately 12,461 square feet of covered arcade and bridge areas for exterior pedestrian circulation and three roof terraces. The building houses a traditional library, information systems labs using state-of-the-art electronic technology, wireless communication centers, electronic production labs, lecture rooms, and administrative offices. CCM provided complete construction management and inspection services, constructability and value engineering, project controls, and commissioning services.
