The county’s plans for the Trinity Site Redevelopment Project took a step forward Friday as crews from Coronado Wrecking began demolishing the two buildings and a concrete pad located on the Tract A-11 Parcel behind the Merrick Building at 120 and 180 6th Street.

The two buildings total 30,350 square feet. Demolition should be completed by Oct. 15.

According to the county website, the approved fiscal ’09 Capital Improvement Project Budget includes an allocation of $9,686,717 for the Trinity Site demolition, which includes funding for the waste characterization, abatement and demolition associated with Tract A-11.

Waste characterization and abatement for A-11 is ongoing and is estimated to cost $351,764 plus applicable gross receipts tax ($24,843), for a total of $367,607. The largest cost associated with the abatement is $225,000 for the asbestos contaminants identified in the roof.

The A-11 demolition bid cost is $249,590, plus applicable gross receipts tax ($17,627), plus a 15 percent contingency ($40,083) for a total demolition project budget of $307,300. Total cost for abatement and demolition of A-11 is $683,907.
