This LEED Silver renovation project “behind the walls” of the 6-story, 49,000 sf building and 19,000 sf parking ramp required exceptional project planning and budgeting. A virtual construction plan using Building Information Modeling (BIM) was implemented to aid the team. 

College Park Plaza is located in a highly populated area in downtown Grand Rapids and remained occupied throughout construction. A detailed logistics plan was also created by our team in order to ensure safety and a successful project outcome.

Scope included:

  • Complete HVAC system upgrades
  • Mechanical system upgrades
  • Electrical system upgrades
  • Direct digital controls
  • New lighting controls
  • New fire protection system
  • New fire pump

Completed in 2013, O-A-K formed a joint venture with MoHawk Construction, a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise from Grand Rapids to provide Construction Management services for this project.

“O-A-K is among the best of the best general contractors and construction managers in the state. They have taken great care in guiding our projects from inception to (beyond) completion in each and every case, with teams of knowledgeable, skilled and professional staff.”
