    May 2020 Update

    Site Work: The sitework is finally shaping up with the favorable weather in April with the 1st lift of pavement happening on April 10th and 11th. In addition, the storm water drainage infrastructure is 90% complete with the detention pond structures and underground piping on the east, north, and west sides complete. Grading has started on the north and west sides to prepare for retaining walls and other hardscapes starting in May once the masonry is complete on the west. Due to limited access to the east side of the site and the demo of the existing Senior Center not starting until late July, the site work will continue through the summer.

    Recreational Side: In April, the pool areas are also taking shape with only the pool deck pours, plaster, tile work, pool mechanical room equipment connections, and miscellaneous finishes remaining. Also, in April, the locker room shower pans were completed and the tile work is approximately 60% complete. In May, the pool decks will be poured, then there will be a pause on work while the pool decks cure. The rest of the Recreation side will focus on the completion of tile work, cabinetry, countertops, lockers, and plumbing and electrical trim out. Additionally, the gym wood flooring installation will begin.

    Community Side: For the exterior, masonry veneer is 99% complete with only a few areas at the Lakeshore patio, brick cleaning, and demobilization remaining. Soffits, column wraps, and other miscellaneous metal trim outs are also very close to completion and should be finished by the middle of May. Additionally the storage, trash, and utility yard building will be nearing completion by the end of May. For the interior, the majority of rooms have the first coat of color paint, grid ceiling framework is installed, and electrical trim-out has started. In the kitchen, flooring, walk-in coolers, and wall panels were completed. In May, cabinetry, countertops, and other finishes will begin and be near completion by the end of May.

    The schedule for the new facility remains on schedule for final project completion in September; however, the early opening of the south half of the facility, including administration offices, meeting rooms and Senior Services, has been delayed to mid-July.

    April 2020 Update:

    Site Work: The couple of snow storms in March did cause additional significant impacts to the site work. For the parking lot, the curb/gutter and sidewalk work was completed and the subgrade has been prepared. Asphalt crews are expected to mobilize at the beginning of April and, hopefully, place the first lift of asphalt. In addition, the storm water drainage infrastructure began on the north side of the site in mid-March and will continue through mid-April. Providing favorable weather in April, the remaining site work should start taking shape; however, due to limited access to the east side of the site, the site work will continue into the summer.

    Recreational Side: In March, the pool area focus was getting the high ceiling work complete with MEP prep, fire sprinkler work, and acoustical panels to get ready for pool deck pours and pool finishes. Finishes are in full swing with painting, polished floors, and terrazzo shower pans about 50% complete. In addition, the majority of the pool mechanical and building mechanical rooms are nearing completion for start up of building water, gas, and HVAC systems in mid-April. For April, the pool drains will be set, deck pours will start, shower tile work will begin, and building startups will begin.

    Community Side: For the exterior, masonry veneer is 95% complete, and exterior soffits, metal fascia, and column wraps are about 50% complete. For the interior, framing is complete, MEP rough-ins are complete, drywall is nearly complete, and the 1st coat of paint is about 50% complete. In addition the elevator installation was started and completed. Anticipated work for April includes the completion of the exterior masonry, window, and metal soffits and fascia panels as well as the installation of the main entry curtain walls.

    The schedule for the new facility remains on schedule for final project completion in September; however, the early opening of the south half of the facility, including administration offices, meeting rooms and Senior Services, has been delayed to mid-July due to resolving issues in the kitchen design to release equipment.

    February 2020 Update:

    Site Work: In January, the weather late in the month has impacted site work significantly; however, some curb/gutter and sidewalk work was completed. In addition, the foundation and some structural masonry walls for the trash/utility enclosure were completed and the Xcel transformer was set. Providing favorable weather, the remaining site concrete for the first phase of paving should be complete. The weather impacts have delayed the asphalt paving another 3 weeks and is currently scheduled for mid-March.

    Recreational Side: The cold pool gutter sections were poured and the warm pool, therapy pool, and spa walls underground piping and backfill was completed. Precast panels that were left out for equipment access were set with the exception of one, and the locker room finished concrete topping floors were poured. In addition, the installation of the basketball hoops and volleyball net suspended frames were complete. For February, the pools with begin installation of the overhead lighting and destratification fans, and the building systems equipment installation, and various finishes will progress.

    Community Side: Exterior insulation is complete, roofing is complete, and masonry veneer is 80% complete. For the interior, framing is 95% complete, MEP rough-ins are 98% complete, and drywall work is 50% complete. All framing and MEP rough-ins will be complete soon, and drywall will be near completion. Painting will begin along with other finishes starting. Anticipated work on the exterior includes continuation of masonry veneer work and start of metal soffits.

    The completion schedule for the new facility anticipates opening in phases with the south half of the facility, including administration offices, meeting rooms and Senior Services, opening in June of 2020 and the remaining facility, demolition of the existing Senior Center, and the remaining site work completing at the end of summer 2020.

    BACKGROUND:

    Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP) was awarded the Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) agreement by Council on January 23, 2018, authorizing the contractor to begin the preconstruction services to include constructability reviews and cost estimating to keep the project within budget. Davis has completed the Schematic Design (SD) design stage and is moving into the Design Development (DD) stage. The Concept Review for the Site Development Plan amendment was approved by Council at the April 3, 2018 Council Study Session with several comments. At the May 29, 2018 Council Study Session, the project team presented the current design of the project which was 96,088 square feet and a total project cost of $47.2 million. Council agreed to move forward with Design Development phase for the fully programmed facility as presented. The Site Development Plan (SDP) amendment was brought to the Planning & Zoning Commission on August 13th. The SDP amendment and an amendment to the CM/GC agreement with AP to add the construction scope with a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) was brought to Council and approved on August 28, 2018. The start of the first phase of construction is anticipated to be the beginning of September.

    On July 11, 2017, Council approved a consultant design award to Davis Partnership PC Architects (Davis). Design investigation, research, and public input process have been completed. With the guidance provided by the Stakeholder Committee (composed of representatives from PRAC, HHSAC, and the Senior Resource Board) and the numerous public comments received, Council authorized Staff to proceed with design based upon the 2-story conceptual design at the December 12, 2017, Council Study Session.

    On May 23, 2017, Council authorized staff to pursue debt financing for a new Community Center. The project will construct a new two-story facility and will be phased such that the north wing of the facility (recreational area) will be demolished to allow space on the site for the new facility to be constructed, and allow the south wing (senior services area) of the building to remain open during construction. This phased method will require that some programs move to the Paul Derda Recreation Center while others would be suspended while the new facility is being constructed.

    At the end of August 2018, Staff and Citizens participated in "BCC Demo Day 2018" to say THANK YOU and GOODBYE to our beloved BCC.
