Vanir provided program, project and construction management services for the Santa Monica Community College District’s Early Childhood Lab School (ECLS) project. Located at Santa Monica College, the 24,099-square-foot, multi-use facility enables teachers in-training to develop crucial expertise under the guidance of leading education professionals. It provides childcare for up to 110 children and serves as a resource for the Santa Monica community. The facility consists of three structures, (one two-story building and two single-story buildings), on an approximately 60,480-square-foot site.
Vanir’s change order negotiations saved costs
Vanir successfully negotiated down 40% of total change orders that had been submitted — resulting in capping the total change cost at 6%, despite work being performed during the COVID-19 pandemic, with material escalations and difficulties procuring materials and labor.
