Grand Rapids Public Schools Building Demolition

Project Details

The primary intent of the project was the demolition of a massive, 4-story, concrete GRPS building which had reached the end of its useful life and did not reflect the historical flavor of the neighborhood or the adjacent Central High building. In addition, a drop-off loop was designed and constructed that would accommodate future phases of the site master plan.


Abonmarche worked with Pioneer Construction and Grand Rapids Public Schools to permit the project and to prepare bid packages for the construction work. The bid packages set forth project requirements that would:

  • Control dust and debris within a neighborhood that contains many historical structures
  • Account for parallel/ongoing remediation efforts
  • Achieve site planning needs for the implementation of future site master plan phases
  • Achieve ADA Accessibility for the new Central High School drop-off loop
  • Accommodate short-term parking and scheduling needs


  • Historical Neighborhood
  • Complex Demolition
  • ADA Accessibility
  • Public Engagement
  • Master Planning


$470,000 Construction Cost
