The death of the shopping center has long been lamented but a Colliers International report…
Over $400,000 saved in site preparation and grading costs by CenterPoint Integrated Solutions, LLC (“CPIS”). In late 2015 CPIS was contracted by our client to deliver a highly visible pad ready site in Waterbury, CT. The site was strategically located to achieve our client’s growth and expansion goals. The challenge, the site needed a massive amount of earthwork, over 100,000 cubic yards (“CY”) cut to fill, to gain the maximum usable area. CPIS developed a plan and scope that included:
- Coordinating with federal and local environmental agencies and officials, to integrate environmental and soil contamination issues and wetlands permitting to obtain project approval.
- Performing earthwork early and during winter months to take advantage of cheaper contractor pricing and fuel discounts.
- Improving site layout to gain nearly 0.5-acres of developable land.
- Integrating the removal and processing of over 50,000 CY of rock material for export.
Through innovative project management by CPIS, the rough pad will be delivered to our client this summer, shaving 2-3 months off our client’s schedule. The original contract award was $3.5-million. CPIS saved our client over $400,000 or 11.5% of original budget.
