Buildings visible at Airport Basin Site

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

A few months ago, the Airport Basin Site behind De Colores Restaurant was little more than a pit full of construction workers and materials.

Today, however, buildings are visible and it seems like more progress is being made each day.

Tonight, the Guaranteed Maximum Price #4 will be presented to council, along with the quarterly update on the project. According to an update posted on the county’s website, the construction work is on budget and on schedule.

With the increased windy weather, crews are working diligently to step up watering efforts.

On Friday, Hensel Phelps Site Superintendent Bill Sloan, along with county staff members, gave school board members, county councilors and the media a tour of the Airport Basin Site.

Among those who attended the tour were school board members Thelma Hahn and Melanie McKinley; Los Alamos Schools Assistant Superintendent Kate Thomas; County Councilor Nona Bowman and Council Chair Michael Wheeler; County Administrator Max Baker; Capital Projects and Facilities Director Anne Laurent and other county staff members.

Those who took the tour were able to enter a couple of the buildings that are being constructed and were given updates on the status of those buildings.
