01-14-2022Church Building Update

We had a construction meeting on Tuesday, January 11th. The attendees were from St Benedict, Double AA builders, HDA architects, and the Diocese. The primary discussions were on the construction and the permitting process.

HDA architects did receive the redline feedback from the City of Phoenix on the Civil engineering section. The suggested modifications were resubmitted back to the City for final review of the Civil plan.

The City building plan reviewers have all completed their reviews but those require a site plan approval before getting final sign off. The site planner is working on that review as we speak and hopes to have it wrapped up early next week.

Based on these reviews the redlined building plan will be returned to HDA architect, who has a team ready to respond. They will adjust the plans based on the City's feedback and resubmit the building plan for final review. The City has 20 days for this final review.

Once the modified plan is submitted back to the City, the contractor will make any adjustments to the costing based on the requested City feedback and complete the contract. The contract will be reviewed by the DIocese legal department prior to Father James signing the contract. We will receive a copy of the contract for our review at the same time the legal team is reviewing it.

The contractor is reviewing the option of pulling a separate grading permit, which will allow the work to begin as items are being finalized.
