what we do

Owner's Representative

Protecting the owner's interests

Parametrix serves as the client's representative, providing guidance through every step of the design and construction process. During design, we ensure that our client's needs are met, both functionally and aesthetically, and that the budget is maintained. We facilitate the solicitation and hiring of a general contractor, whether through a traditional bid process or alternative negotiated contract. During construction, we manage the details for our clients, all the way through completion, occupancy, and project close-out. Through each step, we have our client's interests in mind.

This 129,000-square-foot project incorporated new mechanical, electrical, and power in a restored 1925 brick building. Improvements such as ADA access, new kitchen, and added accessible entrances were added. The original auditorium ceiling and proscenium arched stage were restored, including intricate plasterwork. The educational program was updated, incorporating innovative learning spaces within three-story light wells open to clustered classroom pods. A new synthetic football/soccer/lacrosse track field enhances the athletic program at the school. Parametrix served as the owner’s representative and provided project and construction management and GC/CM advisory services.
