Construction is substantially complete as of Sept. 26, 2013. We received certificates from the City of Kyle and Gensler Architects to certify completion.
During the first couple weeks of October, representatives of the design and construction team and ACC met for many hours over many days to walk through each and every space to generate our final owner/architect punchlist, which is a list of cosmetic finish issues that need to be corrected.
The punchlist is a long document that Flintco distributed, once complete, to all its sub-contractors to fix the issues and recheck upon completion of the work.
This past week we revisited all the rooms to confirm that corrective work was completed to ACC’s satisfaction. However, a few items still remain to be fixed that will take up to the end of October to complete.
Because of recent rains, site work has been delayed, so we have as yet to do the final punchlist of the site. We fully expect to get that work completed within the next couple of weeks. Fortunately, this work doesn’t affect the more critical work that is happening inside the building.
Beginning in November, ACC begins the complex task of installing the furniture, equipment, and fixtures in the building. There is more than $4 million worth of merchandise that will be moved in.
We expect this effort to take the entire month of November and December up to winter break, when the college closes.
Building access during this time will be restricted to authorized personnel only, so that the work can be completed on-time and safely. The building will open to all ACC faculty and staff in early January.
We expect the building to open to the general public for the first day of the spring semester, Jan. 13, as originally planned.
