The Toledo Public Schools (TPS) $800 million dollar Building for Success Program funded by the Ohio School Facilities Commission was designed to rebuild and renovate over 40 schools in the City of Toledo. This massive and complex undertaking was scheduled to take 10 to 12 years to finish, and completely transformed the TPS learning landscape. NCI was originally one of three local civil engineering firms asked to be a part of the Allied Toledo Architect’s (ATA) design team during Segment 1 of the program. One high school, one middle school and an elementary school were successfully designed by NCI during the initial segment. By the start of Segment 2, the ATA was so pleased with NCI’s work and service that they asked us to be the exclusive civil engineer for the remainder of the program.
NCI provided a variety of standard services as well as some additional site specific services as each site warranted. Standard services for all schools included grading, water service (domestic and fire) design, sanitary sewer design, natural gas and meter setting coordination, storm sewer and detention design, erosion control planning and construction administration. Additional services provided specific to each site included tasks such as site analysis, retaining wall design, combination sewer and water main relocations with route analysis and design, vehicular turning movement analysis, intersection improvements and roadway reconstruction. Close coordination was necessary with the City of Toledo Division of Engineering Services, Toledo Public Schools, Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and with each Project Design Architect (PDA) to make sure each project was approved on time and within budget.
