K2M WORKS WITH FEDERAL, STATE, COUNTY, AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT ENTITIES TO MEET THEIR NEEDS ON A WIDE VARIETY OF ASSIGNMENTS
Cleveland Heights-University Heights State Safety Assessment
K2M Design was contracted to provide Safety Plans for 13 sites in accordance with State of Ohio Safety initiatives known as “Safer Schools”. The services included architectural and engineering field measuring, project management and CAD floor plan modifications for the sites selected by the District.
Lander County School District
The partnership with K2M and LCSD began with a complete on-site capital asset inspection, data analysis and reporting conditions on the several LCSD capital assets and continued with a roofing and siding project for the district based on the initial inspection findings. Existing documentation was reviewed by the inspection team prior to the site visit to familiarize the team with the site and familiarize asset ages and sizes. Prior to inspections LCSD staff provided floor plans of various assets as well as a spreadsheet with assets, location, size and year constructed. The subsequent report results are being used to cover a 5-year capital asset forecast.
Allen County Property Condition Assessments
K2M Design partnered with Allen County to provide a complete Planning and Facility Condition Assessment services for approximately 222,000 SF of existing space and land that can and does support various Allen County entities. The team examined the facilities from a size (square footage, employees, parking), capacity, programming and efficiency standpoint with the ultimate goal of providing the Board of County Commissioners with a long term strategy for the efficient use of County buildings and land. The purpose of the effort is to answer three basic questions: What do we have; What do we need; What can we do; What and When should we do it.
Monroe Co Admin Space
Monroe County and the K2M team undertook a comprehensive strategic needs analysis and facilities assessment for both the short-term (5 year) and long-term (25 year). Components of the assessment included Site, Exterior Envelope – wall, openings, and roof, Interior Construction, Structure, HVAC, Electrical / Special Systems, Plumbing / Fire Suppression, Vertical Transportation, Security, ADA, and Detention Systems.
City of Miramar
The city of Miramar, Florida, hired K2M Design to conduct a complete analysis and assessment of its facilities, buildings, grounds, and miscellaneous structures located within the city. This included: identifying current facility conditions and deficiencies, recommending corrections for all deficiencies, providing cost estimates for corrections, and forecasting future capital renewal costs. As part of this contract, K2M Design’s engineers and architects are performing the following services for the assessment: legacy data gathering, creation of asset database, pre-inspection, inspection, data entry and analysis, data review, and data report generation.
In tandem with its engineering partner, K2M provided labor, management, supervision, tools, materials, software, hardware, and equipment necessary to perform facility condition assessment program services at various facilities within the Facilities Engineering Command (FEC) Washington, DC region. Inventory and facility assessments included on-site surveying of capital facilities by architectural and electrical/mechanical engineers in the evaluations of more than 10 million square feet of government facilities, which includes approximately 300 assets with more than 6,000 building sub-systems at six sites throughout the Washington, DC area. The team has worked at sites such as the Washington Naval Yard, Washington, DC; Joint Base at Bolling (JBAB), Anacostia, MD; U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, MD; and Bethesda Naval Facility, MD. The K2M staff in conjunction with our partners were responsible for assessing capital improvements within these facilities, inventorying facility systems and their condition, verifying MAXIMO ICAP data, and amending the Navy’s comprehensive database for each asset.
The K2M Team developed and implemented the first Post Occupancy Evaluations (POE) at NASA facilities with USGBC LEED designations. POE is a process of systematically evaluating the performance and/or effectiveness of aspects of a building and project site such as occupant health, satisfaction, utility reductions, and maintenance.
Ohio Department of Transportation
Ohio Department of Transportation facility condition assessments were performed by K2M Design on 19 full service garages and assessed 40 remote sites in northern Ohio. These assessments consisted of technical reviews of the buildings and their systems with the observations and recommendations noted within a report for each building.
K2M Design is proud to have a ten year relationship with NASA through an IDIQ contract providing Deferred Maintenance Assessments. The DMA program is instrumental in enabling NASA to manage its annual maintenance budget and communicate effectively to Congress its needs. In addition to its role in providing a facilities condition report on every building in the NASA system worldwide, K2M has completed projects required to rehabilitate, repair, construct, modify, or demolish research and institutional facilities.
Tri-C ADA Assessment
K2M Design performed Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Compliance assessments including cost estimating and 5-year capital planning for Cuyahoga Community College at their Metro, Eastern, and Western Campuses. As part of the project our team completed all existing conditions compliance surveys, ADA barrier assessments, code reviews, transition plans (“recommendations”), and cost / feasibility summaries. Once recommendations were approved, K2M was responsible for the design services needed to bring all areas into compliance.
