Airport basin project ahead of schedule

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

It’s been a few months since the Airport Basin Site Project was started and it seems that things are starting to take shape.

Capital Projects Director Anne Laurent and Project Manager David Apple presented council with a quarterly update during the county council meeting on Monday night at the community building.

According to county documents, on Sept. 30, the council approved the second amendment Guaranteed Maximum Price #2 to the Hansel Phelps Services Agreement.

This amendment in the amount of $50,804,480 plus applicable Gross Receipts Tax authorized the majority of the construction work for the project except for a large portion of asphalt work, freestanding covered storage structures and Building F (vehicle wash). GMP #2 was based in part on the Initial Guaranteed Maximum Price of $56,433,607; which included Gross Receipts Tax at the current rate, escalation and contingency.

Amendment No. 3 for GMP #3 will be presented to Council on Dec. 16, 2008 and will include the remainder of the project work. Staff, WH Pacific and Hansel Phelps is working diligently to keep the project within the approved budget and schedule.

Laurent said that there is currently $124,000 in the budget designated for winter conditions, which includes snow removal.
