ST. ANSGAR | layout plans and construction progress on St. Ansgar’s new primary building andassociated projects have encountered Troubles, stated Kevin Eipperle, architect with FEH layout, Dubuque, all through the Monday, June 13, meeting of the college Board.

Superintendent Jody Gray stated notwithstanding the Problems offered by Eipperle, the venture becomestill beneath price range and on course for the district to take ownership Aug. 1.

Eipperle stated prior conferences and a visit to the campus revealed mistakes in contemporary layoutplans as well as mistakes at the part of Henkel creation Co., the contractor for the assignment.

One of the greater pressing concerns addressed by Eipperle was flooding of the locker rooms on the westside of the bus lane.

“We did no longer keep in mind that locker rooms had been there,” Eipperle stated.

Eipperle said the survey corporation FEH layout hired did now not illustrate there have been locker roomsinside the area, handiest a laundry room.

Flooding to the locker rooms changed into attributed to Henkel not getting rid of old paving beforeworking on the brand new bus lane, which created a “little swimming pool,” said Eipperle.

The locker room’s place would require drain tile to drain water, on the way to want to be brought to the purchase order.

Eipperle said due to the fact the purchase isn’t always aggressive, the district pays 5 to ten percentextra. He added the firm would make a contribution 10 percent to the cost of the process and 10percent to the cost of the tile.

Due to (the layout errors), we did not layout steps from the sidewalk to the decrease doorways,” Eipperlestated. “This is some thing our team missed. They ignored it and we didn’t seize it.”

Any other problem conveyed to the board turned into failure of FEH layout‘s shriveled mechanical engineer to illustrate gasoline strains.

Eipperle stated that typically, fuel strains are run over the roof, but because FEH design changed intoinformed the roadway was to be had, the choice changed into made to position them in the road, whichcharges greater.

The board approved a further $6,900 to fund this. Eipperle stated he’s inquiring if the mechanical engineer will make contributions to the value.

Further, there’s harm to the car parking zone inside the form of cracked asphalt and ruts from heavyvehicles as well as harm to antique upkeep.

At the least half of wishes to be eliminated because the contractor damaged it,” Eipperle said.

A good way to update the asphalt, the fee might be approximately $three,500 to $four,000.

In other parking lot Problems, a preceding approval of $15,000, for a hurricane sewer line will not beneeded. Stone on the east aspect of the automobile parking space is higher than offered in the layoutelevation, that means that a typhoon sewer line will not be needed for water waft.
