Westwood Public LibraryCategory: Municipal Renovation
Description: Compass was selected by the Town of Westwood to manage the complete removal and replacement of a linear wood ceiling system installed in the new Westwood Library. The originally installed system failed within a year of the library’s opening. Compass, while not the OPM on the construction contract, was retained by Westwood to assist in the negotiations with the architect’s insurer and the contractors surety to arrive at a settlement that provided for a complete replacement of the ceiling. In addition to negotiating the settlement along with the Town’s Building Committee and the Town’s attorney, Compass managed the design, contractor selection, and construction of the replacement ceiling.
