NELSD Selects Construction Manager

The Northeastern Local School District has selected Shook Touchstone, a joint venture between Moraine-based Shook Construction and Lima-based Touchstone CPM, to provide construction management services for the $120 million new facilities project.

“Shook Touchstone has a proven track record of delivering outstanding school facilities that align with the values and budget of the communities they work with,” said Superintendent John Kronour. “Their excellent references from clients and history of work in the Miami Valley set them apart during the interview process and we are looking forward to partnering with Shook Touchstone to build the future of NELSD.”

The scope currently includes building two new PK-12 facilities. Northeastern School will reside in South Vienna on a newly purchased site, while Kenton Ridge School will be built adjacent to the current Kenton Ridge High School.

The project is co-funded between the school district and the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC). The project also includes $17 million in Locally Funded Initiatives (LFI), which will cover items such as upgraded floor finishes, high efficiency chillers/ice storage, LED lighting, solar hot water, and enhanced security.

Shook Touchstone’s Executive Vice President Andy Goetz shares, “Creating learning environments for Ohio students is one of our main missions here. We’re excited to partner with Northeastern Schools to build a better environment for the future of Springfield kids.”
