Gene Friend Rec Center Project Updates

Capital Project Update

Here are some updates on the project:


  1. We are finalizing contracting with the architecture and engineering team, the Mark Cavagnero Associates + Kuth Ranieri Architects Joint Venture, and hope to officially have them on board by early March


  1. We are working with our staff and core afterschool programming community stakeholders to advance the playground design that was approved by our Commission as part of the overall project design.  Stay tuned for updated design, which will be shared once the architecture team is on board


  1. Public Works issued a Request for Qualifications and Proposals for interested contractor teams last Tuesday, February 8.  This will allow us to use the Construction Manager / General Contractor (CM/GC) contracting mechanism to bring a contractor team on board during the design phase.    The contractor team will be actively engaged in reviewing the design team’s submittals and providing cost estimating and constructability assessments.  Pre-submittal conference is this Wednesday, February 16, 3:15 pm.  Submittals are due on March 9, and we are hoping to onboard a contractor team in June to coincide with the completion of the schematic design phase.  If you know any contractors who are interested, please pass along the following links:
