The Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) Baltimore Chapter recently honored JMT's work on the new Waverly Elementary/Middle School in Baltimore with the 2014 Project Achievement Award. This award, and many others, were presented during the sixth annual CMAA Baltimore Chapter Golf Outing and Awards Banquet in Ellicott City on June 13, 2014. CMAA strives to promote the construction management profession and the use of qualified construction managers on capital projects.

Waverly Elementary/Middle School is the first new building in the Baltimore City Public Schools System to be constructed since 1998. The new three-story facility combines the existing middle and elementary schools into one expanded facility.

JMT provided construction management and inspection services for City Schools, which included daily onsite project support and oversight for the 118,000 square-foot facility and 11,000 square-foot underground parking garage. The team monitored progress and the construction schedule throughout the construction phase of the project.

The Waverly project is on track to achieve a Silver-level rating under the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED® Rating System. The project team designed the building to have a compact footprint containing large windows to maximize daylight and exterior views, landscaping will be completed with native, drought-resistant plants that require no irrigation, and a "green roof" consisting of vegetative and Energy Star materials is intended to reduce building heating and cooling requirements.
