Meadow Ridge is under construction, a 90,000 square foot brand new school for 600 students, which will help relieve overcrowding in both Clover Ridge and Timber Ridge schools. It’s completion is scheduled for early 2020 and the school will open at the beginning of the 2020-21 school year.
Two major milestones were reached in March: 1.) The Architect and Engineers are currently conducting a punch list of the building. This is one of the prerequisites for the Contractor to achieve Substantial Completion. 2.) The electrical and mechanical elements of the project are presently undergoing Functional Performance Testing. The commissioning process ensures that the building functions properly at occupancy and minimizes call backs for systemic deviations of major building systems like HVAC controls systems, lighting controls and emergency generators. The contractor has focused efforts on completing exterior painting, landscaping and final cleanup in preparation for punch listing activities. Todd Construction has been working diligently to make sure that their subs, employees and visitors alike are kept safe in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. They’ve set up a mobile hand washing station in front of the school entrance and require that everyone must wash their hands prior to entering the building. While entering the building, visitors and employees alike will see preventative measures and instructions posted on the doors.
Activities Scheduled For Next Period
Todd Construction will finalize the punch list corrections, present Operation and Maintenance (O&M) Manuals and conduct final training of systems.
Highlights, Challenges, Solutions
Todd Construction continues to work through quality control items. The new painting subcontractor has repainted a large portion of the building. The cabinetry contractor continues to miss delivery and installation dates. Wainscot and final flooring installations have been hindered by quality issues with materials resulting in rejection and reordering of the products. Consequently, the projected substantial completion date has been delayed.
COVID-19 issues are keeping some participants away from the building. We are working around this as best we can with flexible schedules, video conferencing etc.
