Rii is in the finishing stages as CM for the Wadsworth City Schools Facilities Improvement Program. This program includes three new elementary schools, renovations to an existing elementary school and a new high school and community center. The new high school and community center is part of a collaboration with the Wadsworth Community Partnership which includes Wadsworth City Schools, Wadsworth Public Library, Wadsworth-Rittman Hospital, and the City of Wadsworth. The total program cost is $140 million.

Project included:
• A new 450,000 SF high school with an integral community center
• 7,683 SF library/media center
• 45,000 SF field house with four basketball courts and elevated running track
• Competition, community and rehabilitation pool aquatic center
• New Center for Older Adults & YMCA facility

The Facilities Improvement Program also included:
• Three new 53,000 SF elementary schools with two constructed immediately adjacent to existing facilities
• Renovations to Overlook Elementary to house district administrative offices (General Contracting Method)

All three new elementary schools were completed in August of 2012 with the renovations to the existing Overlook Elementary completed in October 2012. The new High School was occupied in August 2012, with a construction duration of 24 months for 380,000 SF of educational space. The remaining Community Center spaces were turned over to the Community Partnership in December 2012 with a fully operational facility in early January 2013. 

Energy efficient elements throughout the facilities include TPO roofing, monitored HVAC consumption, integrated occupancy sensors and a geothermal well field for the high school. The three new elementary schools and the new High School and Community Center will all attain a minimum of LEED Silver Certification.
