Manchester Municipal Complex

Manchester Municipal Complex

Manchester, NH

The City hired Harvey to manage preconstruction and construction of a new municipal complex including new construction of a salt shed and fueling station; a new 35,000 s/f public works headquarters; a new 71,000 s/f police department headquarters; a new 36,000 s/f vehicle maintenance facility; and a new 62,000 s/f vehicle storage facility.

The project was challenged by deteriorating buildings, hazardous soils and limited funding.  Harvey worked with City representatives and design teams to control costs and implement value engineering savings.  Harvey developed over $10 million in potential savings allowing the City to maximize their program while staying within funding limits.  By prioritizing cost elements of the project the team deferred program until funding was available.

In the early summer of 2012 the City released Harvey on the program’s last building, a vehicle storage facility. The building was completed within the same schedule parameters which were set at the conceptual stage of the project, November 2012.
