Bell & Associates Construction has been awarded the new 256 bed, 36,000 square foot housing unit for Metropolitan Nashville Davidson County at the existing Harding Place correctional facility. Bell & Associates was chosen through an RFQ/RFP process and was awarded the Construction Manager at Risk project in November of 2009.
Bell is providing pre-construction services as part of their contract including value analysis, constructability review, construction budgeting cost reviews, schedule analysis, and LEED certification and credit reviews.
In January of 2010 Bell & Associates advertised for bids and prepared a guaranteed maximum price for the construction of the new facility. The guaranteed maximum price fell within the Owner’s budget and construction will begin early 2010. The project will take 12 months to complete and will be submitted for LEED Silver certification through the US Green Building Council.
