Rainier Elementary School

Clover Park School District

KMB was an Owner’s Rep on behalf of the Clover Park School District. The firm played an instrumental role in negotiating land lease agreements and real estate transactions to secure a new 12.75 acre project site. KMB was also responsible for negotiating the scope of off-site improvements and coordinating project approvals with the JBLM planning and public works staff. This project was part of the federally funded program to modernize or replace 1950-1960s vintage schools on military installations across the country. The project also received state funding assistance from OSPI through the “new in lieu” D-form process. KMB performed a leadership role in coordinating the project team’s efforts with the D-form process. This project received approval from the Capital Projects Advisory Review Board in October, 2012 to utilize the GC/CM alternative construction delivery method. This approach has enabled KMB to work directly with the selected contractor and design team in outlining a construction schedule, logistics plan, bidding schedule, and negotiate the guaranteed maximum price for the project.
