POINT PLEASANT — The remodel of the new home of the Mason County Sheriff’s Department is still on schedule for a March completion date.
This week a construction meeting was held with Jerry Jones and Todd Lancaster from contractor Lombardi Development, County Administrator John Gerlach and Tom Cloer from Chapman Technical Group.
According to the meeting minutes, work which has been completed includes: The water line tap is complete and the water line has been installed and tested. The gas meter is set and the gas line is installed - the contractor is waiting on the gas company to make the tap in the main gas line. The storm water line is installed and has been connected to the downspouts at the rear of the building and the existing city storm sewer at the front of the building. The steel pipe bollards have been set in place at the gas meter and the corners of the new addition - however, they still need to be set in and filled with concrete. One additional bollard will be installed after the generator is set in place. The foundation for the generator has been dug and rebar is in place. The concrete will be installed when the weather permits. The forms are in place for the sidewalk (again, concrete will be installed when the weather permits). The furnaces have been installed and connected to duct work. Gypsum board installation and finishing should be complete next week. Installation of the toilet room floor and wall tile is underway. The electricians are still pulling wire and have begun installing some fixtures.
The schedule for upcoming work in the next two weeks includes: Complete gypsum board installation and finishing next week. Start painting once gypsum board installation is complete. Should start installing VCT floors, ceiling tiles and doors and hardware in the next two weeks. Begin pulling data and telephone wire inside the building.
It was decided Lancaster and Jim Kitchen from the telephone company should meet next week to discuss and coordinate the telephone service to the building and the installation of devices within the building.
Before the final completion of the project the contractor will provide training to county employees on the basic operation and maintenance of the various equipment and systems within the building. The contractor will also provide operation and maintenance manuals to the owner with warranty information, owner’s manual, manufacturers contact information, etc.
Following the meeting, Lancaster and Cloer had a brief discussion with Sheriff Greg Powers related to keying of locksets within the new sheriff’s office. It was decided the owner, architect and contractor will formally discuss and make final decisions related to keying at the next meeting.
It was recommended a factory sample of the glazing for the front door with the factory tint be provided for approval before ordering and installing the glazing.
The next regularly scheduled project meeting will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 16.
