Despite their best efforts, the Club’s General Contractor for the construction project informed us today that they have not been able to catch up from some lost time earlier on, and we are now looking at a new completion date no later than the first week in January. The contractor’s superintendent has been extremely diligent in moving the project along, and our own Owner’s Reps have been pushing every step of the way. Some unexpected issues arose along the way, such as a major issue with the fabrication of roof trusses that caused a delay when they had to be sent back. Ever since, they have been working to make up lost time, but the recent delay with insulation installation hurt that effort. Regardless, we are completely committed to getting the building occupied sooner, even if some finish work is not completed.
Getting the Bag Storage room operational is of utmost importance, along with the relocation of the Pro Shop and Offices. And we need to get the Club Room back in order again asap so we can have enough room as we begin the season. I am watching the progress both inside and out, and see this project coming along very well now. Almost all the stucco and roof tile work is complete, and the building will soon be ready for painting. Walls are being painted inside, and the windows and ceiling tiles should be done by week’s end. After that, we will begin finish work and installing carpets. Concrete is being poured today, and the new bag drop and pavers will begin right after. At the moment, the project is under its Board Approved budget, but not by much. That said, we have not yet taken into account any of the shared savings from the contractor, which should help ensure that the project comes in under budget
We will have a Grand Opening Happy Hour from 5-7 PM on Wednesday January 23, 2013, with special hors d’oeuvres, half priced drinks, and entertainment.
There is much to be excited about and we very much look forward to moving into our new home where we can serve the membership’s needs in a building that you will truly be proud of.
