DISCUSSION: LOWER ALLEN COMMONS CONSTRUCTION UPDATE
FUTURE CHANGE ORDERS FOR EASTERN PCM AND WAGMAN FOR TENANT BUILD-OUT
Mr. Gregory Lamay stated this will require additional time and extension of the contracts; it was slated for the end of December and because of the re-design and some of the other extenuating circumstances there will be future change orders.
November Progress so far on the construction as follows:
- The wearing courses are to be started tomorrow and they will finish the baseboards in the back of the building.
- The roadway in the back which is accessible for Trader Joe’s clients, is scheduled for Thursday for concrete.
- Wearing course will be done on the road and the parking lot tomorrow and Wednesday and then they will finish the wearing course on the back of the building on Friday.
- The roof will be completed much earlier than anticipated; they actually delivered the insulation today and they will start working on it.
- There is permanent power established now; there will be another outage in December when they move the transformer into the middle of the express road; that needs to move from lot # 2. This will affect Texas Roadhouse, Bone Fish Grill, the hotel, and the retail; this will be a 3-4 day outage; they are working this up as to cost now.
