Demolition set to begin Jan. 7 for East Patrol campus

Demolition for the East Patrol and Crime Lab Campus will begin Jan. 7 on the first seven houses.

The City of Kansas City has awarded a contract to Kaw Valley Wrecking, LLC, a Kansas City-area demolition company, to perform demolition and abatement on this phase of the project. Kaw Valley specializes in excavating and grading; sand and gravel; construction waste and recycling; and landscape supply.

Kaw Valley will subcontract work to two Section 3 contractors – Anlab Environmental, an environmental and remediation firm, and America on the Go Plumbing, LLC. Another firm, Alex’s Plumbing, a certified minority business enterprise (MBE) company, will also participate as a subcontractor to Kaw Valley.

The city has set the minority and women business goals for the project at 17 percent for MBE (minority business enterprise) and 11 percent for WBE (woman business enterprise). The project’s on-site construction workforce goals are a minimum of 10 percent minority and 2 percent women.

“Many small contractors, workers and Section 3-certified businesses and residents in the area are trained and ready to work,” said Third District Councilman Jermaine Reed. “We will continue to monitor the project and ensure that the workforce goals are not only met, but exceeded.”

Third District at Large Councilwoman Melba Curls added, “The City has committed to reflect the community where it is being built.”

Kaw Valley Project Manager Bob Lane said Kaw Valley is dedicated to hiring two Section 3 subcontractors and a Section 3 employee to their staff.

“We hope this project will provide us opportunities to develop long-term relationships with these firms and with this employee for future projects beyond the East Campus,” Lane said.

The city awarded the construction manager at risk contract to a joint venture between JE Dunn Construction Company and Alexander Mechanical Contractors, Inc. earlier this fall, and the notice to proceed was issued on Dec. 1, 2012.

As the construction manager at risk, Dunn/Alexander’s responsibilities include the overall planning, coordination and control of the construction portion of the East Campus project. Their work will involve overseeing project management, bidding, scheduling, quality, cost and project safety. The Dunn/Alexander joint venture will also manage the project team, including prime contractors and second tier subcontractors, implement project controls, define communication protocols, coordinate project meetings and identify project elements that may be of concern to the city.
