The Airport Basin project now moves into the 60-percent phase following a nearly unanimous vote by county councilors during a special meeting Thursday in Council Chambers.
Public Works Director Kyle Zimmerman walked council through the meeting.
Zimmerman explained the changes and cost savings that have occurred since council approved the 30-percent design phase May 1, 2007. At that time, council approved the addition of Value Engineering Services to the scope of the project, which has facilitated the identification of efficiencies and savings potential.
“Some of the major changes from the 30- to 60-percent design phase include reduced parking,” Zimmerman said, adding that they don’t need a space for every employee because many employees carpool.
Concrete curb and gutter removal from non-essential locations, retaining wall and slope protection reduction, site layout change to reduce amount of imported fill dirt, change to LED lighting and use of detention ponds are changes that have resulted in greater efficiency as well as project cost savings, he said.
