January of 2020 continued to roll toward completion of the interior finishes and ramp up of exterior site work. Inside the building First Floor Punch List, both Hensel Phelps (HP)/Architect and Owner made the walk in all the First Floor but for the Lobby, Assembly Area, and breezeway. HP is working diligently to complete that list to Contra Costa County satisfaction. All technology systems but for Comcast went live this month. The monitor wall is in place being tested with the associated systems. Fire Alarm is currently monitoring the building. Sanitary sewer, domestic and fire water are installed, and chlorination of the domestic water system will complete in February. Entry lobby stairway installation and associated terrazzo flooring was completed, and the glass handrail was installed. Wood wall in the lobby continues to be installed and will complete in February. Terrazzo flooring in all areas required was installed and is indeed a very beautiful floor. Floor finishes were installed in most of the building, cabinets and countertops as well. Horizontal blinds installation was completed. Wall finishes were installed and touched-up for punch. A first pass clean-up occurred for the first floor. Curbs and gutters, sidewalks, and other site concrete has been placed but for the Northeast corner/Public Entry and parking area which will be completed in February. The bioretention ponds were cleaned, and site soils were levelled compacted and place at rough finish elevation around the site. Our tradesmen have worked diligently to keep our site safe and continue to pursue their craft obligation in a professional manner.
