Architect updates BOE on high school construction

Justin White, the architect for the Russellville High School addition, updated the RCS school board on the progress of construction.

He said the project start date was Sept. 8, 2020, and approximately 55 percent of construction is complete.

The current target completion date is sometime in February.

White said some weather days are built in to this estimate, and the project has stayed within the terms of the contract thus far. He also said there have been a few change orders that were intended and planned upon from the beginning.

“Blaylock Building Company has been a fantastic contractor,” said White. “They work diligently to see what’s coming so they can work effectively with suppliers and vendors.”

Equipment delivery that has been delayed includes ERU equipment, which is part of the mechanical system. “It’s not a critical path item right now,” said White.

White said one factor that is impeding progress is acquiring the metal trusses because they are a big structural component of the construction. He explained they were supposed to be delivered two weeks ago, but he expects delivery soon, and he expects installation to begin within the next two weeks.

Other items that have been hard to get are block fill and paint.

The board also a number of standard business items, including monthly expenses, personnel contracts, trip requests and payroll.

The board also approved an agreement with the City of Russellville to clarify “responsibilities concerning the City of Russellville’s 2021 CDBG Community Enhancement application for the demolition of vacant and dilapidated structures throughout the city.”
