$17.5 million

A thorough investigation was completed to determine that abandoning the East Boulevard site and consolidating operations at the McCullough Center site provided the best opportunity for the CIA to move forward with its strategic plan. The scope of this project included a 160,000 sf interior renovation of the historical McCullough Center Building, as well as, a new 50,000 sf addition. The addition was constructed on a very narrow strip of land adjacent to the existing building.

The project received historic tax-credits, creating multiple layers of coordination among the Institution’s Board, historical regulatory agencies, the historic consultant, the design consultants and the contractor. A goal of LEED silver certification has also been mandated by the Board complicating the balancing act to achieve historic designation. MCM led the efforts to rezone the property and the adjacent properties that were required in order to achieve the Institute’s vision and maximize the federal tax credit investment. Our relationships with UCI, the City of Cleveland and councilmen assisted in these processes.

The building infrastructure was out-dated, including the MEP Systems. Additional vertical egress was required in order to meet current building codes.

The project schedule mandated that renovation and the construction of the new addition take place while classes were in session.
