Plante Moran Cresa client Livonia Public Schools opened last week with a positive response from students and faculty as they surveyed the facility improvements that took place this past summer. The district’s renovations were funded by the $195 million bond approved in 2013.
As an owner’s representative, Plante Moran Cresa worked with the district, construction managers, and contractors to coordinate construction on six schools this summer. Hayes, Kennedy, and Roosevelt Elementary Schools; Riley Upper Elementary School; and Emerson Middle School were updated with new classroom technology, temperature control systems, lighting, windows, flooring, and more. The buildings were also renovated to improve security, infrastructure, and aesthetics. Franklin High School saw some preliminary work as well, although the rest of the improvements will be completed next summer.
The district and Plante Moran Cresa will continue to work together next summer on the next set of school upgrades: Stevenson High School, Holmes Middle School, Johnson Upper Elementary, Grant Elementary, Hoover Elementary, and Randolph Elementary.
