Our firm was hired by the Maryland Stadium Authority for the renovations and addition to Dorothy I. Height Elementary School (formerly known as John E. Howard), located in Baltimore City, MD. The original building was constructed in 1961 and a Recreation Center was added in 1966. We managed this complex renovation and addition that affected both areas of the school. The interior renovations included work to the cafeteria, gymnasium, and auditorium; while the addition required demolition to the remaining portion of the existing building first. In it’s place, a beautiful, bright new two-story 59,400 square foot classroom addition was built. The project exceeded expectations for both Minority Buisness Enterprise (MBE) participation and Leadership in Energy and Enviormental Design (LEED) classification. The building was designed for LEED silver and it achieved LEED gold certification. During the project, we were asked to manage the installation of security cameras to the school exterior and interior. This was an owner request change order that accounts for the majority of the cost differential between the initial budget and final cost.
