Consolidated CM (CCM) manages the construction of many types of municipal buildings, including libraries, city halls, community centers, police and fire stations, parking structures, corporation yards, and maintenance facilities. Many of these public projects are complex and involve close coordination with other departments and operations. They are high-profile public projects, which benefit from a firm that understands the special issues they present and has the experience to assist them through the maze of decisions to a successful completion.

CCM is such a firm. We understand the many challenges of budgeting, timing, coordination, construction, and operations issues. Our staff has worked on all sides of construction, and we have the right perspective and experience to help.

City of Santa Clara Main Library
The Santa Clare Public Library provides the much needed gathering place for the inquiry minds of Santa Clara for it is well used and popular with its city dwellers. The $50 million Santa Clara Library overcame schedule obstacles in its conception stage to become an award-winning project at completion. When CCM was hired during the design phase, the project was already five to six months behind schedule. CCM reconfigured the project into a fast-track, multi-prime endeavor, creating a series of construction packages and linking them together using a novation process. This permitted work on the design-build temporary library to begin almost immediately, followed in turn by, structural steel procurement, demolition of the old facility, utility relocation, excavation for the underground garage and construction of the new building. Non-critical path packages included security, book-handling equipment, shelving and several library staff and collection moves. With CCM’s efforts, the project was brought back on schedule and completed on time. CCM provided design and construction management as well as inspection, move coordination, FF&E procurement, start-up, and commissioning, and re-wrote the City’s general conditions for the project.
City of Tracy Civic Center
The new 42,000-square-foot civic center was designed to consolidate the City’s remote offices, create a more centralized and efficient business center, and feature a downtown community-gathering place. The two-story facility houses the 6,000-square-foot Council Chambers and offices for several City departments. With its high-end finishes, the main public lobby provides the community with a grand location for weddings, receptions, and other special events. Construction surrounding the complex included a large public park, an open-air amphitheatre, and parking facilities, which involved extensive utility replace and relocation, and the reconstruction of adjacent public streets. CCM provided constructability and bid phase support during pre-construction and full-time construction management, inspection of record and administrative services for this two-year project. The $26 million project was delivered one-half million dollars under budget and is being considered for several architectural awards.
City of Davis Police Headquarters
The City of Davis Police Headquarters was voted best public project in California for 2003. This award-winning effort utilized an innovative design-build selection process with a design competition among the three short listed design-build teams. At the time, this procurement method required special legislation, but based on the success of this project is now the standard design-build procurement method for a number of agencies, including the California State University System. The project features many interesting elements, including a multi-level roof system with four distinct roof pitches, a central communications and dispatch room with a state-of-the-art response system, a large community room, a controlled-roll-up door system, state-of-the-art maximum security jail cells, and a 200-foot communication tower with its own control building. Construction was completed on schedule and more than $1 million under budget. CCM assisted during the design and procurement phases, and also served as construction manager in the field providing services through start-up, commissioning, and occupancy.
City of Woodland Community Center
The scope of this successful project went through many changes during design and construction, growing under the City’s direction from a $5 million senior center to a 100-acre $25 million multipurpose recreational facility. The resulting community center includes a conference and banquet facility, youth center, City offices for the Parks and Recreation Department, a turf soccer/baseball complex, expanded parking, transportation upgrades, entrance and patio fountains, expanded décor, and enhanced audio-visual and digital service facilities. While the added project scope posed a challenge, the CCM’s proactive “can-do” project team successfully integrated the changes into the ongoing construction and was able to complete the project with only three months of additional time and without any contractual disputes. CCM provided essential value engineering services during design and managed the entire construction process as well as providing inspection, commissioning, start-up, move in and FF&E assistance.
Livermore Valley Center Parking Structure
The City of Livermore Downtown Parking Structure is functional and yet a important building for it won the 2005 International Parking Structure Award. On this project CCM provided the City of Livermore with full-time construction management, inspection, and contract administration for the construction of this new 186,800-square-foot, cast-in-place, post-tensioned parking structure. Three aboveground levels provide 525 parking stalls to support the downtown mixed-use redevelopment project and adjacent transit center. The structure incorporates brick detailing and color schemes compatible with the historical context of the city and the proposed development across the street. The stair and elevator towers are designed to accept a pedestrian bridge connection to a future retail and performing arts center. Because construction access was available on only two sides – the railroad runs along one side and existing buildings obstruct another – crane access for the installation of cast-in place post-tensioned concrete with a lateral system of concrete moment frames was challenging. The project was completed on time, within budget and without claims.
Sandia National Laboratories
CCM assisted the Sandia national Laboratory with the management of the design and construction of the 74,000 sq-ft Distributed Information Systems Laboratory (DISL) in Livermore California. In this role, CCM provided schedules estimates, constructability, value engineering, inspector of record and field engineering support for the project. The Distributed Information Systems Lab (DISL) develops technologies for enabling collaborative, high-performance computational work. DISL provides high-end computer simulation capabilities. DISL research is focused on high performance computing, visualization, distributed systems, collaborative technologies, and information security. The building is designed to support both classified and non-classified research. CCM team made a difference by pro-actively managing field activities as well monitoring construction schedule. The $24M project was completed in June of 2004. During the construction phase, CCM team was consistently given an outstanding score of 9.8 on a scale of 1 to 10 for our construction management service by Sandia National Laboratory.
