We’ll be contracting our consultants (Whinnery, S2O, AloTerra, GEI, Ehrhart Land Surveying) as soon as our agreement is activated with our funders at the State. We hope that this will be next week.
Once under contract, the design-build team will work on permitting, hydraulic modeling, and construction-ready designs.
The minimum funds needed for final design and construction are secured. Thank you landowners and Boulder County for helping to raise those funds. Currently we have $8,820 raised beyond the minimum $55,000; those funds are reserved for critical contingency should we discover additional important construction needs during final design and/or construction. If those funds are not used, they will rollover into the required 3-yr monitoring and maintenance period will need to be raised; those funds are 2% ($10,224) of the construction cost which is currently estimated at $511,231. Additional contributions from Craig Ferguson will need to be added to finalize the funds raised.
