Commodore John Barry Elementary School (Philadelphia, PA)
STV provided construction management services for Commodore John Barry Elementary School, a new 94,000-sf facility that was awarded LEED Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. One of the challenges presented by the project was the extremely constrained urban site — just 43,650 sf and bounded on all four sides by two-story brick row houses dating to the early 1900s — requiring careful planning and monitoring of construction staging. Significant savings in cost and time were achieved at the school, thanks to STV’s recommendations. The project was part of a larger five-year Capital Improvement Program for the School District of Philadelphia.
