JPJ complex takes shape

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Masonry block is beginning to cover the bare exterior walls and windows are being hoisted up to fill empty holes in the Judicial/Police/Jail Complex.

Things seem to be taking shape as crews work diligently to construct the new facility on the corner of Oppenheimer and Trinity.

So far, the project is on schedule, on budget and moving along smoothly, but as with any project, there have been a few obstacles along the way. According to Capital Projects and Facilities Director Anne Laurent, the main challenge at the moment is maintaining an occupied and functional police building while the construction continues. However, in order to remedy this situation, temporary staff moves are being made, as necessary.

In addition, the new fiber installation slated to take place in the coming months will also be a significant undertaking for crews working on the project. Laurent said there would be significant advance coordination to minimize the potential for any problems.

So far, the following progress has been made on the project:

Area A — Jail building:

• The placement of masonry block started on April 13 and is progressing well and is about 98 percent complete.

•  Ongoing work is being done to the electrical rough in in the masonry walls.
