The Cleveland Browns Foundation hired us to construct a field for the Akron Public Schools. We would be the GC. Not sure who would be the customer. The Browns pay us, but they are not a GC they are just an intermediary. Would it be Browns or Akron Scools?
Ohio does not have any "preliminary notice" requirements for general contractors. As for the Notice of Commencement, either the owner or general contractor can prepare and record one. If you prepare one, you would need to identify the owner of the property being improved in the Notice of Commencement? If the Akron Pulic Schools owns the land, then it would be identified as the owner. If a private entity owns the land, then it would be identified.
Feel free to reach out directly to me with any questions.
