Actionable Items

Floor Coring
Status:
[11/9/16] Due to some incorrect locations of conduit and piping knock-out locations in the structural first floor slab core drilling will be required.  Scanning of floors to start on 11/18/16.
[11/16/16]  In at least one instance the coring required is in relation to the roof overflow drains.  The General Contractor is determining if it is acceptable to daylight the overflow drains.  The answer to this will determine where the cores will need to be placed.

HVAC Unit Placement
Status:
[10/12/16] Rooftop units are schedule to begin placement (pick date) on 11/15/16.  This date may need to be adjusted as the developer is planning on opening a portion of the new parking garage and access cannot be blocked unless previously approved in advance.
[11/9/16] The crane for HVAC unit placements is arriving on site at midnight on 11/19/16.  The Rain-For-Rent water truck will need to be relocated on 11/18/16 to avoid conflicts with crane placement.
[11/16/16]  HVAC crane placement and unit pick on track for 11/18/16.

Building Exterior Scaffold
Status:
[11/9/16] Coordination is underway to determine where and when scaffold can be placed around the exterior of the store structure so that metal panel installation, waterproofing and finishes can be applied.
[11/16/16] Metal panel shop drawings are in production and fabrication dates are being established.  These should be ready for review on approximately 11/30/16.  The General Contractor is estimating that the metal panel installation will begin in April or May 2017.

Bridge Access
Status:
[11/9/16] Steel for bridge is currently being fabricated.
[11/16/16] Bridge steel has been received and the OK to install has been given all associated contractors.

Doors and Hardware
Status:
[11/9/16] As a number of doors and their hardware will be shared by the developer and the store coordination is underway to determine if all will function as desired for both parties.
[11/16/16]  In review with both the mall contractor, the store and the store’s loss prevention team.

Stair Seismic Detailing
Status:
[10/12/16] There is on-going coordination regarding the connection points, hand rails and structural implications of the “Grand Stair” (the exterior stair that leads up the west side of the building).
[10/19/16] The structural engineer provided details to the construction team during the OAC meeting illustrating  the required concrete embedding of stair handrails and the location of the metal panels.

HVAC Unit Placement

[10/19/16] The General Contractor and the Developer have agreed on 11/22/16 as being the first day that the rooftop HVAC units can begin placement on the roof.

AT&T Conduits
Status:
[10/19/16] A couple of  issues with the previously installed conduits for the incoming AT&T circuits have been brought up:  Pull boxes were not provided in the conduit run at maximum 100′ intervals and no conduit has been provided between the building floors.  The incoming conduit terminates at the floor of the garage level and conduit sleeves are provided through the first floor slab but no conduit has been provided between the two to protect the incoming cables.

Domestic Water Service
Status:
[10/19/16] The Developer is working on providing a schedule to the General Contractor to establish when the permanent domestic water service will be connected and operable for the store.  In the meantime the Developer is reviewing how and how much temporary water service can be provided to the store.
