The Governing Board of Benicia Unified School District unanimously voted to approve change orders for Benicia High School’s stadium renovation project, allowing it to address any unforeseen circumstances.
The project, one of the largest to be funded by the 2014 Measure S initiative,received an update from Bond Director Roxanne Egan. The scope for current change orders— the amount of work added to or subtracted from the original contract which could alter the original contract amount or estimated completion date— includes sewer modifications, an increased sewer slope, two Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant parking spaces in the parking lot beneath the tennis courts, concessional and restroom building modular changes, additional soil preparation for modular buildings and the removal of unforeseen hazardous materials from the site.
Egan says the sewer modifications have caused some delays, but the construction is proceeding well and is expected to be completed in the spring.
