Construction Manager Richard Mitchell of Codell Construction told the Trigg County Project Development Board that the Justice Center’s progress remains on schedule.

“We’re 70 percent complete with the basement and foundation. The underground sewer lines are 100 percent complete and inspected. The cooling tower is 100 percent complete and inspected and the heating is 80 percent complete,” Mitchell told the assembled board at last Wednesday’s meeting in the Courthouse Annex Basement.

Trigg County Judge/Executive Stan Humphries introduced Paul Cable as working for designing architects CMW, with the role of overseeing contract administration. Cable said that Architect Dennis Arthur would “still be in the office to do what needs to be done to get pieces and parts in line to be built.”

Cable added that he would work with construction management personnel and contractors to provide shop drawings of features within the building to his office and the Project Development Board.

“I’m glad Paul is on the building,” said Mitchell. “We’re working together on two or three other projects and have had a good working relationship in the past working on other justice centers and detention centers. He does very good work.”

Mitchell told the board that plans to provide a mock-up of a wall featuring choices for bricks and mortar for the building had again been delayed a month because a color chart for mortar colors had not yet been provided to the builder of the mock-up.

Humphries asked Mitchell about the feasibility of adding a wireless Internet or mobile telephone antenna to one of the two towers on the building.
