The site superintendent for the contractor constructing the new Frenchman Valley Coop building at the south end of Broadway Street expects to meet the June 5 competion date. James Zack of TCC Corporation of Colorado said Monday that everything has gone smoothly so far.
Although inclement weather has played a small part in schedule blips, Zack said his crews spent any down time catching up in other areas.
Most of the work is subcontracted. As of Monday there were 15 people on the job, such as framers, welders and plumbers, with two masons ready to join them.
The 14,800 square foot building will house all of the Coop’s offices from the present office building, plus several more, according to Coop Manager Jim Chism. He said plans are still being evaluated for the use of the present office building.
The main floor of the new building will consist of offices, a meeting room, board room, computer room, and cubicles in the center.
The basement will be partially finished, with dry storage, three offices and fireproof storage for records, blueprints and show.
Chism said the initial cost estimate for the new building was $1.750 million.
