The Kempanaar Family in Middletown Rhode Island hired an Owner’s Project Manager to help them navigate the daunting task of site permitting, site and building design and the hiring of a construction manager in order to re-purpose a 50+ year old block building. Two national tenants pinpointed this corner as the next retail hot spot in Middletown, only a stone’s throw from Newport Rhode Island (or locally knows as Aquidneck Island). These highly demanding clients were Chipotle and Corner Bakery.
Bowerman Associates, Inc. was hired as the Construction Manager to manage and oversee the re-development/re-purpose of this 9100 SqFt restaurant/retail building and associated parking lot. The plan for our services included a complete gut of the interior existing restaurant. This also included major roof repairs, new exterior soffits, lighting, new HVAC systems, all new electrical and plumbing systems, demolition of the majority of interior slab and associated underground utilities, coordination with National Grid for new upgraded electrical service to the property, completely new parking lot drainage systems, exterior patios, landscaping, curbing, entryways, sidewalks, parking lot paving and striping.
Bowerman Associates and team were able to quickly mobilize on site and get up to speed and formulate an action plan to meet the project goals and tenant deadlines. These goals included converting a very old, tired, structurally challenged building into an exciting “NEW” Retail/Restaurant destination within an aggressive timeline and within a tight budget range.
Bowerman Associates, Inc. operates with a simple philosophy: Quality Workmanship, High Standards and a Firm Commitment to all of our projects to ensure customer satisfaction and generate future business relationships. As construction managers, we understand that fundamental to the success of any project is the concept of teamwork. Our methodology incorporates all members of the project team; we work closely with architects, engineers, owners and local building officials to create a product that all parties can be proud of for years to come.
