Pascack Valley Regional High School

Montvale, NJ


Client: Pascack Valley Board of Education

Project: Pascack Valley Regional High School

Epic’s Role: Construction Manager/ Advisor

Construction Costs: $42 Million

Epic served as construction manager /advisor representing the District during the design, construction and closeout of both projects.  Significant upgrades to M/E/P systems, as well as a new 50,000 sf science wing and gymnasium, and outdoor recreation area were the focus of the Pascack Valley High project. The project was especially challenging due to the need to perform all construction activities in and around the operating crowded high school.

A significant planning and coordination effort was required and maintained on a day-to-day basis. Close collaboration with contractors, school administration and inspection agencies was paramount to maintaining schedule. Safety of students, faculty, visitors and workers was of paramount concern at all times. While not a complete new school out of the ground, the project was complex in many ways and for many reasons:

  • Phased program included major interior demolition, reconstruction of the auditorium, addition of a new science wing and gymnasium, renovation of classrooms, locker rooms and toilet rooms
  • Need to maintain all normal academic and related operations at all times
  • Constant coordination with administration and maintenance of all life safety systems
  • Upgrade and expand M/E/P to accommodate additions
  • Coordinate schedule to remove and replace electric service and switchgear
  • Heating equipment and boiler replacement off season to feed additions
  • Gas service upgrade and extended to serve additions
  • New air handling units installation for additions and upgrading fan coil units for renovations
  • Demolition uncovered unforeseen conditions requiring adjustment to plan and schedule 

The Epic Team worked very closely to ensure effective communication and preplanning to negate surprises and minimize disruption to normal school facility operations and the educational process.
