“FMD Architects look out for their customers’ best interest. As an owner, I appreciate how they listen to what we want and need. They are very detailed in their design that in turn saves on change orders.
They are very cost-effective designers.”

CLIENT
Stark State College – Pedestrian Bridge

WHAT WE DID
Architectural Design / Consulting / Project Management

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Our services included design and construction documents for architectural, MEP, structural and civil engineering to create a statement entry for Stark State. This 1,513 SF Pedestrian Bridge connects Frank/Mega Student parking lot to campus, with a budget of $1,000,000. Extended CA services were provided for multiple contracts.

THE CHALLENGE
The project had land acquisition challenges and therefore the construction was delayed, resulting in increases from contractors for extending the schedule.

THE SOLUTION
FMD worked diligently to oversee the successful completion through to the end, with a total cost of $1,217,000. Our professional design team worked to manage the delayed meetings and extended schedule within our original scope of work without increase to our fee.
