Vanir served as the owner’s representative for the construction of the new Fort Logan Northgate School, a partial two-story structure that is awaiting LEED Gold certification. The school combined students from the existing Fort Logan Elementary and Sheridan Middle schools, creating a new grades 3-8 school. This project also included a major renovation of Sheridan Middle School to house the District’s Early Childhood Center.
Vanir’s services helped keep the phased project within the approved grant funding, and on schedule for school openings. The elementary and middle school academic wings on the campus are joined in a central core, consisting of common spaces (such as the cafeteria, gymnasium, and art rooms). Sitework involved the PE/athletic field, playground area, bus loop/lane, parking lot, and new water line main.
Fort Logan Northgate School was funded by Colorado’s BEST Grant Program, in an effort to provide a safe and inviting school environment while lowering ongoing maintenance costs for the District.
Vanir was initially hired by the District to correct issues on previous construction projects. Over the course of nearly 10 years, we have provided comprehensive owner’s representative services on various projects, as well as management of the District’s 2012 bond program. Our services have included budget and schedule tracking, change order validation, contract administration, and management of the architect.
