Case Study: Re-Building Cincinnati Public Schools, CPS Facilities Master Plan

FMPS is most proud of our participation in the complete replacement and renovation of all the school buildings for Cincinnati Public Schools. As the Facilities Director for Cincinnati Public Schools, Michael Burson was the chief district administrator for the project. The plan, which included 50 projects, cost $1.17 billion dollars, and was completed in 2013 after getting approval of the taxpayers in 2003. With 22 LEED registered schools, this plan has been transformative for the district and the 52 neighborhoods it serves.

Case Study: Renovating Historic Buildings

FMPS has spent the last 40 years fixing and restoring buildings built from 1860 to today. This includes maintaining historic Cincinnati City Hall (1893), stopping leaks through the walls of 30-year old buildings at University Hospital, to the gutting and complete renovation of 11 historic schools built in the 1910-20’s. FMPS is currently serving as the Owner’s Representative for the renovation of Cincinnati Union Terminal. Opened in 1933, Union Terminal is a stunning example of Art Deco style and unique utilitarian design. FMPS was honored to be selected to assist with the management of restoration and renovation of this incredible building. The total project budget is $212 million and the work is to be completed in November 2018.

Case Study: The Shelterhouse

The Drop Inn Center was founded in 1973 to serve Cincinnati's homeless men and women. As part of the "Homeless to Homes Plan" adopted by Cincinnati City Council, The Drop Inn Center, now operated as The Shelterhouse, with public and privyae support, moved into the new Esther Marie Hatton Center for Wormen and the David & Rebecca Baron Center for Men in 2015. FMPS served as a special advisor to the executive director managing the construction and move-in for these 2 facilities and assisted with maintenance and operations plans for the homeless centers.
