66th Street spans nearly the entire width of the City of Richfield. This primary artery provides access to multiple commercial and residential districts throughout the city. The corridor serves as a major pedestrian route connecting prominent public spaces located within the surrounding communities. The corridor had deteriorated pavement, aging and undersized watermain, sanitary, and storm sewer facilities, and outdated signal, lighting, and pedestrian accessibility features.
Bolton & Menk partnered with several local firms to provide construction administration services for the federally funded project. The project included an emphasis on maintaining public access and preserving relationships with the impacted community. We took a synergistic approach to generating construction documentation and establishing QA/QC procedures to ensure documentation met federal funding standards. We also ensured the project stayed on schedule by tracking and managing the review process of more than 100 submittals, mitigating risk through detailed plan reviews, carrying-out value engineering changes, coordinating private utility schedules and sequencing, and providing in-field design revisions to lessen utility conflicts and construction delays.
Through active and consistent coordination efforts, construction met contract schedule milestones and remained within budget.
