Gene Friend Rec Center Project Update 3/25

Capital Project Update

We are officially under contract with the architecture and engineering team, the Mark Cavagnero Associates + Kuth Ranieri Architects Joint Venture, as of March 23. We are looking forward to working with this team to finalize the project design and construction documents!

We are using the Construction Manager / General Contractor (CM/GC) contracting mechanism for this project 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. Due to a technical issue with acceptance of submittals with the first advertisement, Public Works has issued a second Request for Qualifications and Proposals for interested contractor teams. Submittals are due on March 30, and we are planning to onboard a contractor team in late Summer to coincide with the completion of the schematic design phase. If you know any contractors who are interested, please pass along the following links:

We are working with the Public Works Site Assessment and Remediation (SAR) team, and their consultant, to complete environmental investigations that are required for compliance with the Maher Program.  We anticipate having investigations and reports completed by early Summer so that the findings can be addressed as the design effort progresses.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions, otherwise stay tuned for more updates!
