Our development team and architecture firm spent June completing revisions on CJ building parking garage drawings and submitting them to the City of Ocoee. Several tests were administered on the infrastructure, and surveys were completed and submitted. Precast and steel details were worked on for both AB & CJ parking structures. Elevator drawings were submitted and approved. Fence repairs began, and property maintenance continued. Our Developer, Chief Engineer/Construction Officer, and our Chief Operations Officer continued to work on the next creative finance opportunity for City Center West Orange.
AB Garage Drawings
The approved AB garage drawings were hung on the construction trailer walls ready for the next phase of construction. The image below shows the zones that will be completed with the crane up four levels.
CJ Parking Garage Drawings
Initial permit drawings were sent to the City on January 11, 2021. The revisions for the submitted CJ Garage permit plans were re-submitted to the City of Ocoee on June 14, 2021. This revision addressed the value engineering incorporated into the documents as well the building department review comments. We are now awaiting permit approval on these revisions by the City of Ocoee.
Surveys & Manholes
To complete the infrastructure, as-built surveys were conducted for underground and overground. Manhole repairs were completed; sewer lines were cleaned; water samples were taken. This information was included on a Department of Environmental Protection (D.E.P.) application and submitted on June 18, 2021 to the City of Ocoee for signatures. Once the City signs off on the D.E.P. application, CCWO will sign applications and the D.E.P. application will be sent to the D.E.P. for approval. This will close the infrastructure portion of the project except for anything needed to be done during the parking garage construction phase.
The property maintenance crew completed the mowing of the retention pond, sales center, parcels off Maine Street, and began to tend to the growth on the construction site. Herbicide was sprayed for a second time on the construction site, but the rainy season definitely started in June, and we've been fighting the rain the entire month.
