CM: N/A % Billed: 11.8 % of Contract Days: 47

Progress this period: • • • •

Attended bi-weekly progress meetings. Concrete slab foundation poured. Met on site to discuss pouring the concrete without the presence of an inspector and the fact that two of the four samples had low seven-day breaks. The Structural Engineer and the Materials Testing Laboratory recommended three test be performed to verify the quality of the concrete-Swiss Hammer test and Core Samples to test compressive strength, and Petrographic Analysis to provide information on the quality of the surface. Met on site to observe the Swiss Hammer test which was performed on the concrete slab on August 10, 2010. The Swiss Hammer technique is a non-destructive method to test the compressive strength of the concrete. The slab was tested at 23 different sites. The hammer left indentions (to varying degrees) in the concrete surface at each of the test locations, some of the indentions even flaked off. While some of the individual test locations reported strengths lower than the acceptable level, collectively, the average met the ACI criteria. Because of the Page 2 of 5

indentions and flaking, the City is concerned that there may be issues with surface strength and durability. Core samples were taken and analyzed. A total of 9 cores were taken uniformly throughout the slab for testing. All of the cores met the ACI criteria of 85% compressive strength. A total of 5 samples have been sent to the laboratory for the Petrographic analysis. The results of the analysis will be available September 15, 2010 Crain group was advised that to begin erecting the building before all of the concrete testing was complete would be at their own risk on August 23 and August 26, 2010. The erection of the Pre-engineered building began August 28, 2010. Contractor encountered groundwater while attempting to install the sanitary sewer line. To resolve this issue, the contractor has been asked to submit a RFP to provide dewatering. Met with vendor to discuss proposal to provide an alerting system for the facility that would tie into the City’s existing dispatch system. Met with vendors to receive proposals to provide security for the facility.

Attended weekly progress meeting. The jack and bore under the railroad tracks started until August 10, 2010, the expected duration is approximately 20 days for each of the three runs. The railroad shut the project down twice because of deflection issues. These issues have been abated by slowing the train speed down to 25 mph. To date there have been 13 boxes installed. The run is a total of 20 boxes. The intersection closure has been pushed back because of weather and the jack and bore delay. The anticipated closure is September 13, 2010. The clearance issue for the trucks entering and leaving Pipe and tube Supply’s yard was resolved. The overhead utilities along Mykawa were raised. The message boards stated that the intersection closure would occur on September 7, 2010, however, there has been additional delays because of rain. Excavated dirt is being used to fill Pipe & Tube Supply’s borrow pit per the agreement. The pit is approximately 80% full. Page 4 of 5
