Knowing who the architecture & engineering firms are could give us a little insight as to how long it will take once the final drawings are approved for construction. One of the things that can slow the entire project down are change orders. And we all know that cost over runs are a common occurrence in large projects. If CU awards the contracts to a company that has vast experience in design / build for these types of facilities, then it would be $$$ well spent.
I saw that timeline. I have to say I think it's extremely aggressive. To the point of being unrealistic. It all hinges on their ability to get the necessary funding in place, too.
A lot of times in projects like this, they finance the initial construction with bonds, and then pay the bonds off over time through donations. I expect that's the case here, as well. Not knowing for sure what the Regents actually approved, they may have approved the funding of the facilities through the Foundation, with repayment coming over a specified time frame.
Breaking ground in spring, sayeth RG on the Fan this afternoon. Would that mean after spring game or after commencement in Folsom?
I just sent my donation, I like Rick George.
That would be make the Fall of 2015 goal more realistic. The BDC article said this summer would be the earliest that work could start.
Break Ground - December 2014
Occupy Facility - August 2016/August 2017
Based on the fact that the Grounds/IPF (recycling) building needs to be replaced with a new building east of the Regent garage, the NE stadium rework/expansion and the indoor practice building will be last. They will probably begin with the buildout of the 4th floor and some of the Dal Ward renovations. It sounds like from the other information that was on the regent docs, the Grounds/IPF would be complete by EOY 2014 which would support ground breaking on the stadium work immediately after next season ends.
From a construction standpoint, the Indoor practice facility could be completed in about 6 months from groundbreaking. These are just large metal boxes. Building this over Franklin is a huge cost saving measure. The redesign with eliminating the garage etc. not only reduced the overall cost by at least 30 mil, but allowed the money to be better spent in other areas. They essentially have already raised enough money to begin on the IPF. If you look at the Broncos proposal they are spending approx. 30 million for an IPF and a much smaller renovation.
What is the time line demanded in the coaches contract?
[h=2]What is the time line demanded in the coaches contract?[/h]Anyone know?
Anyone know what?
Anyone know what Facilitites are. Are they related to the Hittites? Or maybe something more current such as the Mennonite?
That plans be submitted to the board of regents before the end of december.
Check that box.
CU should go Anti-Oregon and build totally Spartan facilities. Totally minimalist. Hard core. Set the tone.
So... Status Quo?
No. Strip it down from what it is now.
So has anyone heard if the $50M is still the fundraising target with the total cost coming down ~$30M?
Worked for Rocky in the Russian Tetons
I think they said they wanted a third before proceeding, so if we're going with $142 million as the project cost, that's what, $47 million or so needed. So not much lower.
Thanks. I can lower my gift down to $1.5M :lol:
That's what i'm talking about!
You'd love the current/former basketball workout space while the new rooms were being worked on.
