Donley’s Selected as Construction Manager at Risk for New Parking Garage on MetroHealth’s Main Campus
Donley’s has been selected as the Construction Manager at Risk, the company which oversees all construction services, for a new 1500-car parking garage on MetroHealth’s West 25th Street main campus. MetroHealth’s Board of Trustees approved the Cleveland-based company at its regularly scheduled board meeting last night.
The seven-level, open-deck garage will be located on the site of the former NorthCoast Behavioral Hospital. It will be designed to accommodate technology to direct drivers to open spaces or read license plates to save employees from idling while they stop to swipe ID badges. It will replace the current Southpoint garage and will be for patients, visitors and employees.
Five companies responded to a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the parking garage’s Construction Manager at Risk. Donley’s was chosen, in part, due to its vast experience building parking decks.
“Donley’s has the experience and knowledge to undertake this important piece of MetroHealth’s transformation,” said Walter Jones, senior vice president of campus transformation at MetroHealth. “We have a track record of working successfully with each other and are looking forward to this next project.”
Donley’s built MetroHealth’s Brecksville Health & Surgery Center, which opened in 2016, a project that was completed under budget and on time. Once the garage is finished, MetroHealth will demolish the current Southpoint Garage to make way for a new, 270 room hospital. The entire campus transformation is set to be complete at the end of 2023.
Construction on the parking garage is set to begin this fall and it is scheduled to open in 2018.
