May 15, 2009 (COLUMBUS) Over 160 construction management personnel and architects were in attendance this week at the second of three regional meetings sponsored by the Ohio School Facilities Commission.
The half-day program for those firms involved in OSFC-funded projects are designed to give participants updates on agency initiatives and requirements in programs such as LEED for Schools, bidder qualifications and contractor evaluations, on-site observation, and data collection for the state’s EDGE contractor program.
The first session was held May 5th in Cincinnati.
The last of the meetings will be held May 19th in Parma.
Established in 1997, the Commission is responsible for administration of the state’s school construction and renovation program. The Commission is currently working with, or has completed all necessary work in, nearly two-thirds of the state’s 613 school districts.
On September 10, 2012, the Commission was consolidated with the Office of the State Architect to form the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission. The Ohio School Facilities Commission continues to exist as a separate commission within the new agency, focusing on funding Ohio’s comprehensive K-12 school construction program.
