Building Committee Update

On April 8, 2016, the reorganized building committee met. The parish council approved the organization chart showing the new committee and support teams. (See above).

Jeff Helvey was selected to chair the Building Committee, while he and Rich Eich will co-chair the Construction Team. Kirsten Small is the Project Coordinator.

The Construction Team is working on getting the house on the property removed. ECS Carolinas has been selected to complete the required asbestos testing on the house prior to demolition.

The site engineers are working closely with the county to finalize the site drawings; we expect these to be submitted to Greenville County no later than April 20. Once we receive the county’s final approval and permit, the completed Site Plans along with Andrew Gould's Building Construction documents will be provided to George Webb at Clayton Construction, who will obtain final bids from subcontractors and submit a completed construction contract for the project.

Clayton Construction will reach out to the subcontractors with the completed information requesting they resubmit their bids to reflect any changes from the completed drawings. Clayton

will prepare a finalized contract price for St. John’s approval.

The Finance Team, chaired by Bill Wamboldt, is reaching out to potential lenders in anticipation of receiving the construction contract from Clayton Construction.

The pre-construction phase of a major building project is always the longest and most frustrating. Your ongoing prayers and support are greatly needed and appreciated.

The Building Committee and support teams are working to help facilitate efficiency and transparency. The next scheduled Building Committee meeting will be Sunday, May 8, following liturgy.
