Judicial complex construction to begin next week

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Starting next week, residents will find Oppenheimer Drive closed for construction as work starts on the new Judicial/Police/Jail complex.

Capital Projects Manager Anne Laurent and Public Works Director Kyle Zimmerman were in council chambers for Tuesday night’s meeting to ask that council approve the services agreement with HB Construction of Albuquerque, authorizing them to move forward with work associated with the JPJ complex.

Council voted 6-1 to pass the motion, with Vice Chair Robert Gibson voting against it.

The construction start date was moved from Nov. 3 to Oct. 20 because of weather and trying to avoid new year prices (for materials), Laurent said.

“We are staying on track and moving forward rapidly,” she said.

The agreement that council passed last night is for work associated with Guaranteed Maximum Price #1 in the amount of $2,656,758, plus applicable gross receipts tax.

Laurent and Zimmerman will return to council in December, with Guaranteed Maximum Price #2.

Construction associated with GMP #1 includes mobilization, site demolition, underground site utilities, earthwork, drilled piers, grade beams, electrical and plumbing underground work, slab on grade and all necessary temporary utility work to keep the existing police/jail facility operational.
