HomeFront New Family Campus, Ewing Township, NJ

Contracts used:

  • ConsensusDocs 410  - Owner and Design-Builder Agreement (Cost of Work Plus Fee with GMP) 
  • ConsensusDocs 410.1 - GMP & Completion Dates Amendment

Owner’s Counsel: Saul Ewing LLP – contract drafting and review

Project Description: HomeFront plans to convert an 8.5-acre decommissioned U.S. Navy base in Ewing Township, N.J. into a one-stop social service campus for homeless mothers and their children.  A 42,000-square-foot building and two smaller structures will be converted into a family shelter with 38 dorm suites and will include space for current services such as job training and a therapeutic art studio.  New programs, including a 24-hour childcare center and a teaching kitchen, will be incorporated into the project and community partners will gain more space to create a central hub of support services.

Project Testimonial: “Saul Ewing LLP was engaged on a pro bono basis by HomeFront to draft and review contracts for the construction of the New Family Campus.  HomeFront is a non-profit social services charity and, unlike a commercial real estate developer that often has teams of attorneys to scour construction contracts, the ConsensusDocs proved worthwhile due to their practical layout and focus on readability.  From a legal perspective, their substantive provisions were also sound.

ConsensusDocs’ web-based platform for managing documents also was useful in helping the team of Saul Ewing attorneys work from multiple locations and collaborate with various stakeholders.  This presented a significant advantage compared to other construction contract platforms that tie the drafting attorney to the workstation bearing the software license. I will consider ConsensusDocs for future projects.”

Contracts Used:

  • ConsensusDocs 410 -Owner and Design-Builder Agreement (Cost of Work Plus Fee with GMP)

  • ConsensusDocs 450 - Design-Builder and Subcontractor Agreement

Project Contractor:  Brexton Construction, LLC

Project Description: The project consists of an existing one-story warehouse building approximately 229,000 sf. The building was damaged by a wind storm which caused a 44,000 sf portion of the roof to collapse pulling all the mechanical systems in with it. A portion of the exterior concrete tilt walls were also blown out, demolished and removed leaving the building exposed to the elements. The building, shipping and receiving had to remain in operation for the duration of the project. Brexton, the tenant, owner, insurance company, lender and code officials all working together made it possible to complete the project in just less than eleven weeks with only 8 change orders (3 of which were a deducts for allowances not needed).

Project Testimonial: "This unique design-build project forced the insurance claims team, owners, tenant, design builder and major trades to expedite every facet of reconstructing this thriving distribution center for the tenant. I convinced the owner that a collaborative team effort would achieve the best results for their tenant. The fact that the ConsensusDOCS were created through a collaborative industry effort and support this very type of project better than other Standard Agreements and General Condition contracts available on the market today, was a key point in selling the delivery method to the owner."

Trimble Rockies Campus, Broomfield, CO

Constract Used:

  • ConsensusDocs 301 - Building Information Modeling (BIM) Addendum

Project Contractor: JE Dunn Construction

Project Description: LEED Gold, 125,000 sq ft, 4-Story, Class A Office Building located in Westminster, Colorado. While the Trimble Westmoor Building project is contracted under a more conventional guaranteed max price (GMP) project delivery mechanism, the project team is facilitating the project using integrated project delivery (IPD) techniques and strategies to gain the lifecycle benefits of BIM and deliver the project in a tight 13-month schedule.  

The full spectrum of Trimble technologies have been utilized on the project spanning survey, site-work and excavation to estimating, 3D design and modeling, project management, sheet metal fabrication to construction layout. 

Throughout building design and construction, the project team has facilitated the seamless transition of data from design through construction and handover using building information modeling (BIM) technology. The project team developed detailed, dimensionally-accurate models, drive that data to the field using BIM-to-field methodologies, and then re-capture data in the field to update the model, thus creating a digital file that lives throughout the facility’s life.

Project Testimonial: "I believe that the ConsensusDoc 301 BIM Addendum that we utilized on the Trimble Westminster campus project may offer the most functional and practical solution to defining contractual requirements for BIM enabled projects."

The Oaks at Austin Lakes, Austin, TX

Contracts Used:

  • Consensus Docs 300 - Tri-Party Agreement for Integrated Project Delivery (IPD)

Project Partners/Signers:
Owner:  Universal Health Services, Inc. (UHS)
Hospital:  The Oaks at Austin Lakes
Architect:  Polkinghorn Group Architects
General Contractor:  Lott Brothers Construction Co.
Mechanical/Plumbing:  Cobb Mechanical Contractors
Electrical:  Colvin Electric
Drywall/EIFS: F.L. Crane & Sons, Inc.

Project Description: The Oaks at Austin Lakes in Austin, Texas is a $11.5MM new, freestanding, one-story, 48,000 square foot Acute Care 80 Bed Behavioral Hospital with a 10,000 square foot admissions and outpatient building, constructed on the site of the previous Oaks Treatment Center. The final campus layout was the result of a collaborative team effort which had to determine the optimal building and site configuration given local regulatory constraints that included building around
heritage trees and a maximum allowed impervious cover yet create an efficient end user layout, and reduce required site and building cost.

This new facility includes eighty beds (56 Adult, a 16 Bed Adolescent and an 8 Bed child Unit), indoor and outdoor
recreation areas, dining area, assessment and counselor areas, administrative areas, group therapy rooms, and other amenities. Through the collaborative analysis conducted by the team the final, optimized site layout resulted in a ‘triangle’ shaped main building with a separate outpatient and admissions facility.

The facility is located in South Austin and will fulfill a much needed treatment need in an area which has historically lacked sufficient psychiatric beds for adults, and will alleviate emergency room backups currently occurring due this lack of services.

Project Testimonial: "Universal Health Services, Inc. believes in utilizing Lean principles throughout the entire design and construction process and the Consensus Docs plays a vital role in aligning the contractual incentives and roles of the project partners with the overall goals of the project.

The Project Team’s high level of collaboration throughout the project phases has resulted in an efficient, cost effective and most importantly, healing and therapeutic building design with a very high degree of confidence in the building quality and predicted delivery schedule.  In addition, managing an aggressive project target cost estimate that the Consensus Doc signers accepted as a challenge, all partners are projected to realize profits at the full enhanced levels."

Project Description: The new $154,000,000.00, 180,000-squre-foot, 140 bed, acute care hospital in Temecula California, will have all private rooms and a 20-bed intensive care unit (ICU), as well as six high-tech surgical suites, digital imaging and an advanced electronic clinical information system. A relatively new feature at Temecula Valley Hospital will be a Consolidated Treatment Unit — a uniquely designed emergency department that is flexible and versatile, allowing expansion according to need — and where inpatients and outpatients can prepare for procedures.

Project Testimonial: "The owner wanted a team that could deliver a hospital that was 30% less in cost and 30% more efficient than any systems best performing facility than the average California hospital. The owner also wanted it to be the fastest to market from design to completion (heads in beds). The owner assembled a highly collaborative team before any drawings were created and established a risk / reward contract using ConsensusDocs 300 which would guarantee all signers labor cost, but require a guaranteed price by putting our profits into one pool. This arrangement would insure collaboration and innovation from all signers to meet the requirements of budget and schedule while adhering to the owners establish conditions of satisfaction."

ConsensusDocs delivers and takes the guesswork out of contracting a project! We appreciate the user friendly documents and the ability to save the exact contract that was sent to our subcontractors. The easy to read and understand language used throughout each document we use is a huge plus. We can’t imagine doing a project without ConsensusDocs!"

Project Description: Design a new Administrative Office and separate Plant Building on one site with sound barrier using a team of consultants chosen by WAR.

Project Testimonial: "From the beginning of the design-build process, WAR was informed that this project may or may not proceed to construction. Using ConsensusDocs made us feel comfortable knowing that if there were any issues regarding ownership of the designs, that we had the documents and the American Arbitration Association on our side. This project never made it to the construction phase; however, with the use of ConsensusDocs, we were able to retain ownership of the designs presented to the Owner using our team of consultants and receive payment for services rendered through the design phase of this project.

North Carolina History Education Center, New Bern, NC

Contracts Used:

  • ConsensusDocs 301 - Building Information Modeling (BIM) Addendum

Project Contractor: Clancy & Theys Construction Company

Project Description: CM at risk contract with the State of North Carolina to construct an education center consisting of exhibit halls, meeting rooms, auditorium, and food facilities near the site of the historic Tryon Palace.

Project Testimonial: "The construction team used 3D modeling as the primary method of mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire suppression system coordination. As the Construction Manager, we needed a way to organize and legitimize the modeling process. Even though the BIM Addendum assumes that the project owner, architect, and contractor will partner in the modeling process, it was easily adaptable to our situation. The ConsensusDOCS 301 provided the right guidance in drafting an agreement between Clancy & Theys and our specialty contractors for the 3D coordination effort."
