Gafcon was retained by the City of Santa Ana to provide construction management services for the design and rehabilitation of Cornerstone Village located in the heart of Santa Ana. The project consisted of landscaping, street, curb and gutter improvements, as well as the rehabilitation of 80 privately owned residential building façade and courtyard landscape improvements. This project required Gafcon to prepare and implement a comprehensive community outreach and safety program due to its fast track schedule. To the client’s full satisfaction, this complex “pilot” project was completed on time and well within budget.
Gafcon’s responsibilities included: development and implementation of an aggressive project construction phasing plan, consultant interface, scheduling, estimating, cost control, bid and award of multi-trade construction packages, project oversight, and cost control. Change order fee negotiations, contract administration (monitoring over 48 contracts), tenant coordination, process progress payments to general contractors, and coordination and attendance of weekly meetings.
