The Ingham County Justice Complex is a new construction project consisting of a Sheriff’s Office, Jail, and District Court. KMG was engaged as the Owner’s representative after a feasibility was conducted under the previous Sheriff’s administration was used to secure the millage approval. Our team immediately led the effort to identify and organize a steering committee comprised of representatives from each of the stakeholder groups to identify program needs within the bounds of the project budget identified in the millage funds. KMG has managed the selection process for the architect, all consultants, and the construction manager and developed all contracts on behalf of the County. KMG is also leading the procurement effort for all owner provided project components including FF&E, owner vendors, services, and internal groups such as IT and Communications.
This project is being constructed on the same site as the existing complex, so careful consideration was taken in identifying a project approach that would ensure operations were not affected by construction both prior to and after the County’s transition to the new facility. The project utilized a delivery method that included early procurement of a construction manager and design assist partners to ensure budget and schedule needs of the project were closely monitored and achieveable.
The project is currently under budget and on schedule despite a global pandemic and a volatile market, which is a testament to the high level of planning, management, and engagement of everyone involved.
