Meals On Wheels Project Overview

Meals on Wheels (MOW) needed to develop a multi-functional, disaster-ready facility that would allow for efficient, centralized meal production. MOW began working with an architectural firm that led the process. The quote quickly ballooned to $500,000 and pushed the projected total cost to more than $7 million and the design had lost much of the desired functionality.

McGuire Development met with board members to determine project goals, budget and costs, current needs, and future growth plans. On behalf of the owner (MOW), McGuire Development managed the process with a full understanding of the not-for-profit’s mission and directed the architect in the building’s design and functionality.

McGuire Development’s signature transparent process saved MOW over $400,000 in architectural and engineering fees and delivered the project at $5 million, down from the projected $7 million.

Under McGuire Development’s project management, the building opened under budget and on time, with 100% of the construction savings and project contingency passed back to MOW.
