Day 42 - SUB Renovation construction contracts, what's inside the U of A Project Management Office, Colour Board for the SUB Coffee Shop - June 27, 2013Josh Le - Fri Oct 04, 2013
Top: The Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC) is a national joint committee responsible for the development, production and review of standard Canadian construction contracts, forms and guides. The CCDC 2 is a standard prime contract between Owner (SU) and prime Contractor (Carlson Construction) to perform the required work for a single, pre-determined fixed price or lump sum, regardless of the Contractor's actual costs (Source ccdc.org)
Bottom-left: I went into the U of A Project Management Office beside the Butterdome and University field for the first time. I never really bothered to think about what's inside these temporary structures. It turns out they are portable office spaces for Clark Construction (who working on the PAW Centre). We had a meeting with the construction manager from Clark Construction for the PAW Centre to discuss details about updating the 89 Avenue utilities. Long story short, it's useful to have direct contact with the point people and there are some details you can't sort until they happen.
Bottom-right: The colour board for the new coffee shop is complete! Colours aren't entirely accurate through the photo, but it should give an idea of what to expect.
