Hawk Street Improvements

Nicklaus performed: Pre-construction activities that included coordination and management of the pre-construction meeting with representatives from Imperial County, GC Quality Control Material Testing Consultant, Engineer of Record, and Heber Public Utilities District.  Construction services included full-time construction inspection including daily and weekly reporting to Imperial County and weekly safety and progress meetings with the GC. As digā€out operations began, Nicklaus discovered the existing roadway section was not as described in the construction documents, leading to project quantity underruns. Nicklaus documented measurements with the GC and used the daily reports to help avoid potential conflicts with the Contractor’s payment requests. Nicklaus identified additional areas with failed subgrade and marked the areas for removal, while maintaining the overall quantity underruns and provided pre-final and final walkthrough services with Imperial County and the GC, noting all punch list items. Post-construction, Nicklaus worked with the GC and Imperial County to close-out the project, including review and approval of the final pay application, retention pay application, As-Builts, closeout documents, and final report.
