J.R. King Performing Arts Academy

White Construction was selected by Detroit Public Schools for Design-Build services at the J.R. King PK-8 School. We were engaged to implement a $10.8M guaranteed maximum price for design and construction renovations over a 7 week summer recess period utilizing 30% design guidelines from the Owner.

The project entailed our staff and trades working two (2) - 10 hour shifts 6 to 7 days per week for this seven week project. Major upgrades and replacements were made to the mechanical, HVAC and electrical systems of the facility.

Each classroom, gymnasium and other educational spaces were gutted and restored with new wall, ceiling and floor finishes. This fast tracked project finished on time and under budget and earned accolades from the Principal and Detroit Public Schools Emergency Financial Manager.
