The Board of Trustees approved a fund transfer, as well as change orders related to the ongoing stabilization work at St. Paul’s during its Feb. 4, meeting:
CNY Group: Trustees approved a $200,000 expenditure for CNY Group to continue Construction Management Services for the St. Paul’s building stabilization work. This is a continuation of the service originally approved at the March 28, 2019 Board of Trustees meeting. Funds are available in the St. Paul’s Recreation Facility Capital Project account.
Westar Construction Group, Inc.: Trustees approved a $32,282 change order for Westar Construction Group, Inc. for additional shoring and joist replacement of an approximate 300-square-foot area in the first floor main entrance foyer. According to Walter Beal of the CNY Group, upon entering the foyer crews observed the flooring had actually collapsed into the basement. Funds are available in the St. Paul’s Recreation Facility Capital Project account.
Thornton Tomasetti: Trustees approved a $15,000 change order for Thornton Tomasetti to provide investigation services to assist the village in better understanding the damaged roof and to provide conception recommendations to repair these areas. According to Mr. Beal, the flat roofs endured additional damage due to Hurricane Isaias and recent high winds. Funds are available in the St. Paul’s Recreation Facility Capital Project account to cover this change order. Village Treasurer Woo noted that roof damage costs could be added to the total request for FEMA reimbursements, as the damage was due, in part, to Hurricane Isaias.
Stained glass preservation bids are expected back Feb. 23. The project could be awarded at the March 1 Board of Trustees meeting. Preserving and protecting the stained glass windows is an eight-week process, according to Mr. Beal. Proposals are also being sought for the phase II environmental report to begin investigating abatement. Mr. Beal noted that the abatement process could begin before building stabilization is complete.
