August Construction Update

Update as of August 1

 

The new roof is nearing completion. Forming of the warm water pool and installation of the rebar in it is to be complete by the end of July; with the same process occurring in August for the lap pool. During the project, as various heavy rain events have occurred, leaking was discovered from a variety of sources and locations. Modifications to the roof drainage plan and remediation of the angles at which drains empty will be done to eliminate these issues. In addition, areas affected will be dried and sealed to prevent future leaks and resulting damage. These discovered problems and the related solutions necessitated change orders to the project but we are still within the contingency allowances budgeted.

The pool sub-contractor, Paddock, will be intensifying the work for which they are responsible in the coming weeks and marshaling the work force to complete it. RCC staff are working on scheduling locker room improvements (totaling approximately $163,000) and will coordinate that scheduling with the pool renovation contractor and Department of Public Work and Environmental Services (DPWES). The Aquatics Director and Program Manager are developing their re-opening calendar. That has been shared with the project team. Programming is in a state of ongoing development as the winter/spring guide document is being finalized. 

The project team includes Branch Build project manager Bill Ruschaupt. For RRMM Lukmire Architects: Brandon Hughes; for Fairfax County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES): Martha Sansaver, Karen Davis and Geoff Kimmel; for RCC: Executive Director Leila Gordon and Deputy Director John Blevins.
