Blythe Group served as the Owner Representative/Program Manager for District 51’s $109-million bond program approved by the voters in fall 2004.  Our services began with physical assessment of 37 existing school buildings in which we identified just over 2,300 deficiencies totaling $230M to repair.  Following the successful bond referendum, we orchestrated an aggressive 2-year design and construction program that resulted in construction of 6 new/replacement schools and repairs/additions to 35 more.  Our aggressive program resulted in there being sufficient funds leftover to build a needed additional elementary school not originally included in the budget.
