SBA COMMITTEE MEETS ON PROJECT DELIVERY METHODS

 

The committee of the School Building Authority of West Virginia met Friday, September 8, to continue its discussion on the best use of construction management on school construction projects.  After the meeting, state schools Superintendent Dr. Steve Paine said, “I think we’re getting closer to a resolution, but there are still a lot of unanswered questions in my mind.”  Dr. Paine is the chairman of a committee formed to review the practice of hiring construction management firms to help manage construction and renovation projects funded by the SBA.  The committee met for a second time Friday.  Dr. Paine said the committee would schedule a third meeting before it makes any recommendations.

 

During Friday’s two-hour meeting, the committee heard about the issue from contractors, architects and current and former construction managers who have been involved with building schools.  “The issue, as you probably know, is what’s the value of a construction manager?...” Dr. Paine said after the meeting.  “That role seems to have affected the role of architects and contractors – they all seem not be satisfied with each other.  And we’re just trying to get at the issues that exist.”

 

Winfield Strock, former CAWV President and former construction manager, told the committee about the history of the SBA’s use of construction managers. Strock said it started in the late 1980s, when the SBA and the state Regional Jail and Correctional Facility Authority were formed. There was a concern that with the increase in projects, the work would go to out-of-state companies and workers. Construction managers were part of an effort to make sure West Virginia got its fair share of the work being done, he said.

 

“I never heard any conversation saying that these projects were too complex and would require construction managers because of the complexity of the projects,” Strock said. “The concept of the construction managers was brought about because of these circumstances regarding the volume [of work], bonding issues and the potential for out-of-state contracts to come in and take a lot of the work.”

 

Speaking at the meeting included CAWV members Rick Milhoan, Project and Construction Services, Inc.; Adam Krason, ZMM Architects and Engineers; and CAWV Executive Director Mike Clowser.  Other engineering and architect firms made comments as well.

 

The Joint Government Accountability, Transparency and Efficiency Committee will meet Monday, September 18, at 8:00 a.m. to continue its discussion of the issue.  This committee met during last month’s legislative interims and continues its discussion at the September interims.
