The 100 percent construction document set has been released for final review by the college’s commissioning agent, ACR Engineering, ACC departments, and the Plum Creek Architectural Review Committee. Comments are due August 17. All comments will be addressed, and an addendum will be subsequently issued.
Gensler also submitted the site development design drawings to the City of Kyle for permit review. We are awaiting word on the first review pass. Flintco has also issued the 100 percent construction document set for bidding by the subcontractor community. We held a pre-proposal conference in Kyle last week. More than 100 companies showed up, evidence of the huge interest surrounding this project. The bids also are due August 17.
ACC has signed the guaranteed maximum price (GMP) with Flintco for the project. The construction budget is set at roughly $26.4 million. This excludes all soft costs. A notice to proceed will be issued to Flintco just as soon as Plum Creek Architecture Review Committee approves the project and the site development permit is secured. We hope to begin ground work by the end of August.
We have started the process of developing the furniture, fixtures, and equipment list for the project. We will be holding a series of meetings with Gensler and ACC departments to further define department needs for these items. A master spreadsheet is being developed to help us to track the literally thousands of items. We will coordinate with the Elgin Campus and Highland Mall projects to standardize furniture selections for all three projects.
In the meantime, ACC is working to sign contracts with Multivista for photo-documentation of the project construction and Fugro for materials testing and engineering services. Once construction begins, we will begin posting site photos to chart the visual progress of work.
