Project Descriptions
CSU Chico, Bell Memorial Union - $24 million

The Tiburon Group provided constructability review, scheduling support, construction phase Schedule Management and Claims Avoidance/Mitigation consultation services on this complex multi-phased expansion/rehabilitation project of the Chico State BMU/Bookstore Project. 

The project was complicated by the tight schedule, greatly constricted site and phasing requirements.  Elements of the seismic upgrade to the existing building had to occur while occupied.  Further, the milestone for opening of the new Bookstore had to be maintained to avoid lost revenue.  In addition, design of fixturization and the procurement of many fixtures were under a separate contract being managed by the Associated Students.  These had to be coordinated for successful opening.  During the initial phase of the project approximately one-month schedule slippage was encountered due to the excessive rains of 1998/1999.   Later in the project various work around schedules were developed to accommodate Owner directed changes to the foodservice area to mitigate delays to the opening of the renovated Student Union.
