CONSTRUCTION BUYOUT AND PROCUREMENT Guaranteed Maximum Price Contract 1 (GMP1) which primarily included site mass grading is substantially complete. Hensel Phelps’ CMAR contract was extended to include GMP2 by the Board of Supervisors on December 16, 2020. GMP2 covers the remainder of construction activities required to build out the project, including site infrastructure, paving, and buildings. The basis of GMP2 was developed using DLR’s 100% CD’s.  Hensel Phelps is the in the process of reconciling the most recent set of construction documents, including ASI’s 001-014, against the design documents that were used to finalize GMP2 in December 2020.

CONSTRUCTION Berg Electric is continuing with the installation of site and building conduits. Midstate Mechanical is continuing with installation and trenching of underground plumbing.  Baker Concrete is nearing completion of stem wall foundations on the project. Stone Cold Masonry is following close behind and constructing masonry stem walls as continuing lifts vertically in Area D. Expedited portions of commercial and detention door frames have been delivered which has mitigated some of the risk of delay to masonry installation which was mentioned in last month’s report. Anticipated construction activities in August include: • Continuation of Slab on Grade activities • Continued installation of masonry walls • Continued installation of branch plumbing and electrical conduits • Continued installation of door frames • Delivery and commencement of structural steel installation Construction progress is approximately 23% complete by contract value.

CONNECTIONS FACILITY County and Sheriff’s Office representatives have issued a Request for Qualifications to local Title 36 mental health providers and have received three responses. The responses are currently being evaluated by the County and Sheriff’s Office representatives. Interviews are expected to be held in August and a provider is intended to be selected in September. The provider that is selected will occupy Building E along side the Sherriff’s Office when construction is complete.

CONSTRUCTION BUDGET & TIMELINE The Construction Budget for the project is $62,846,027 and substantial completion is scheduled for August 17, 2022. July saw precipitation levels that were higher than average. This as well as some quality control issues with the concrete scope of work has contributed to some slow downs in production rates on site.

SAFETY There have been no safety incidences to note this month. There are many open trenches and rebar is being actively placed and the team has been asked to give extra awareness to related hazards. Visitors to the site have also been asked to be aware of slick conditions related to rain. Scaffolding hazard training has also been provided to those who will be climbing the scaffolds. If visitors to the site wish to climb the scaffolds, they must be escorted by a Hensel Phelps representative.
