Plante Moran Cresa (PMC) has been engaged to provide owner’s representation services for Northwestern Michigan College’s (NMC’s) two upcoming capital projects. The NMC Board of Trustees approved PMC’s engagement at the February 22 meeting.

PMC was initially engaged in November 2015 to conduct a capital planning and financial feasibility analysis report for the proposed student housing project, whose total project value was estimated to cost $7.3 million.

As owner’s rep, PMC will oversee the planning, design, construction, move-in, and close-out of a 46,000-square-foot, three-story student residential housing building as well as an 11,000-square-foot addition and renovation to the Dennos Center Museum. The Dennos Center Museum project is estimated to cost $4 million. These two projects are the first in NMC’s five-year, $30 million campus-wide capital plan.

“We are honored to be selected by NMC to partner on these projects,” said Paul Wills, partner at PMC. “Having managed $1.5 billion in projects for a wide range of public and institutional clients, PMC looks forward to bringing our strong public service expertise to NMC’s projects.”

Design for both projects is underway. Construction for the housing project is expected to begin in the summer of 2016 and the expansion to the museum will start soon thereafter. Both projects are expected to be completed by fall of 2017.
