Cincinnati State Technical and Community College
The complete renovation of a vacant office building located in downtown Middletown, to house a new campus of Cincinnati State Technical and Community College (CSTCC) in the Butler County area. The initial phase renovated the first and third floors of the six-story building, which had sat vacant for a number of years. The project required significant demolition and repurposing into a modern college campus with classrooms, computer labs, testing rooms, student service and intake spaces, cyber café, satellite bookstore, offices, conference room, security office, retail space, and lobby. Upgraded MEP systems and ADA compliant updates were also included in the renovation.
Megen provided both preconstruction and construction services, and managed an extremely tight schedule in order to complete the project by the College’s opening date for the new school year. Through collaboration with CSTCC and subcontractors, the project was successfully completed a week ahead of schedule. CSTCC was also delighted with our thorough closeout process, which provided them with a keying schedule, comprehensive owner maintenance manuals, and an inventory of materials/products stored in the facility for the College’s future use including carpet tiles, ceiling tiles, and lighting.
We have been fortunate to provide construction services for additional “encore” projects in the CSTCC Middletown Campus including renovations to the basement, penthouse, and sixth floor into a workforce development center and additional classrooms and laboratory spaces. including the renovation of the building’s basement for a new Workforce Development Center and the renovation of the penthouse and sixth floor for additional classrooms and laboratory spaces.
Days Ahead of Schedule
“Megen’s work was excellent. The project was well-documented from start to finish, decisions were made in a timely manner, owner input was included in the decision-making process, and a very challenging timeline was met with the building delivered for the Fall 2012 semester.”
