Kiran C. Patel High School
With a focus on transformative learning and teaching, The Dr. Kiran C. Patel High School is committed to implementing a comprehensive framework for 21st century education that focuses on the skills, knowledge, and expertise students must master to succeed in work and life.
An architecturally award-winning project, the Dr. Kiran C Patel High School presented a number of challenges. Designing and building a 66,000 square foot state of the art educational facility requires a great deal of coordination under the best of circumstances. When the entire process takes place in less than a year the collaborative effort with all of the project constituents becomes imperative. The detailed coordination effort between all of the Colwill Engineering entities and our project partners that began with design and continued throughout construction delivered the intended results.
Colwill worked closely with the Architect and General Contractor to ensure we could design and build the facility on a fast-track schedule which maintained initial conceptual budgets while also providing best-of-class finishes. Revit modeling was used throughout the project to eliminate clashes and interference, and to ensure labor resources were planned and utilized in the most efficient manner.
The Award-Winning High School opened on-time, on budget, and with zero lost time accidents. Construction schedule was restricted to a 7-month timeframe in order to meet the School year opening date.
