City Creek is a sustainably designed, walkable urban community of residences, offices and retail stores rising over the next two years on approximately 20 acres across three blocks in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City. Upon project completion in 2012, the city will be one of few in the nation with a vibrant, mixed-use development at its core.
HHI is acting as a liason between Jacobsen Construction and Pretecsa, receiving archtectural pre-cast concrete panels, inspecting them for damage, and performing patching and repair as necessary.
HHI Corporation was the Architectural Precast Concrete subcontractor to Big-D Corporation. HHI designed, furnished and installed 87,000 square feet of architectural precast concrete panels. HHI’s partner, PRETECSA, in Mexico City, Mexico, manufactured the precast panels in accordance with HHI’s design. The panels were shipped by HHI from the manufacturer to Salt Lake City (2,330 miles). In total HHI shipped 140 loads and almost 4 Million pounds a combined distance of 326,220 miles or 13.1 times around the World. HHI installed the panels with its own forces, successfully and safely erecting 2,120 panels on the project.
This multi-phased project included the construction of a new 2-story 38,000 square foot Aircraft Maintenance Facility, construction of a new 5,000 square foot office building, remodel of 2 Aircraft Hangars, major remodel of existing Maintenance Building, and the demolition of 6 existing buildings. Work included all divisions and was phased to allow the Owner to move and relocate personnel at various times throughout the project.
The Wyoming State Hospital, located in Evanston, included construction of a 37,000 square foot adult care facility for use by the Wyoming State Department of Health. Key features were: 20 Foot High Concrete Shear Wall; Metal Casework; Metal Roofing & Wall Panels with Conical Shapes; Extensive Mechanical and Electrical; Metal Stud Framing; Metal-Framed Skylights; Extensive Site Development; Structural Masonry with Brick Veneer ; Fluid-Applied Flooring; Structural Steel, Joists, and Deck; Interior Architectural Woodwork; and Wet Pipe Fire Sprinklers.
HHI encountered many problems throughout the construction of this project. After the project was well underway it was evident that there were major design, code and health department compliance deficiencies in the contract documents. Throughout construction of the facility HHI submitted many VECP’s and 127 RFI’s. HHI worked closely with the Owner and Architect to correct the deficiencies in an effort to bring the building into compliance. Mid-way through the project the owner required the Architect to remove his original project manager from the project due to design and contractual issues and problems. Despite the many problems with the plans and architect, HHI forged ahead and completed the project, even to the extent of creating a steel erection crew from scratch when the original subcontractor pulled out.
The construction of a new 13,300 square foot medical clinic for use by Hill Air Force Base Flight Medicine, Pediatrics and Audio/Visual Medicine included: Structural Steel Framing, Exterior Precast Concrete Panels, Built-up Asphalt Roofing, Interior Metal Stud Walls, and High Quality Finishes.
The project was originally designed and expected to bid five years prior to actual bid date. During the five years the project was mothballed by the Government, medical technology and construction standards changed. Once the project was released for bid, the new standards were incorporated into the project after the contract was awarded. These changed standards resulted from a significant number of change orders and decreased cost and schedule impact, which was easier and more advantageous for the owner than correcting the design prior to bid.
The largest dollar value changes were comprised almost entirely of two specific changes:
- A Value Engineering Change Proposal submitted by HHI’s Engineers that redesigned the concrete foundations and over-excavation of the building. This VECP was accepted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and resulted in a significant cost savings to the Government.
- The addition of new fiber optic communication lines to the scope of work. The original contract required a connection into a non-existing fiber optic system. Base Communications was unable to complete the installation work necessary for our work to continue. HHI completed the new fiber optic communication system for Base Communications with a minimum impact to the overall cost and schedule.
