Addition / Renovation, Lima, Ohio

Project Scope

Tuttle was hired on a design/build basis, to build an addition to the church as well as renovate the existing facility. During the initial planning process Tuttle was involved in providing value engineering and working with the architect to ensure the project design was completed in such a manner that it fit into the project budget. Tuttle also worked with the owner to develop a schedule and promote sub/supplier interest in the project as the design development took place.

Project Accomplishments

The most difficult hurdle that Tuttle crossed in completing this project was keeping the church functional through the new construction phase as well as renovation phase. The church maintained regular operations throughout the construction process. Due to the sensitive environment Tuttle had to make sure the noise, dust, and dirt were kept to minimum levels. Another challenge was coordinating with all of the church's regular and scheduled activities, specifically ensuring there was adequate parking for Sunday services. Provisions were made to ensure the facility was in a tidy and orderly condition prior to Wednesday and weekend services. Tuttle paid particular attention to safety,
