Stonebridge was selected by long-time client TheGeorge Kaiser Family Foundation to serve as the Owner’s Representative for The Gathering Place Park in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Upon completion of the bidding process, the selected Construction Manager returned bids that were over $50,000,000 over budget. Stonebridge advised our client to replace the construction manager with Crossland Construction. Crossland was able to complete the same scope of work with no added time for $50,000,000 less.
