Stone Valley Middle School Construction Update 12/14/18
Posted 12/14/18

Over the past several months, SRVUSD staff has worked diligently to ensure that Vila Construction resolves several key issues with the company’s progress on the construction project at Stone Valley Middle School. Despite these efforts, staff remains concerned about several key issues, including ongoing concerns with meeting the schedule, a reduction of personnel dedicated to the project, and quality control. Given the continuing issues, the SRVUSD team has taken steps to terminate the contract with Vila Construction.

 

While there will be a temporary stop in construction, we expect that the Stone Valley Middle School project will resume progress and return to its schedule in a timely and efficient manner. Moving forward, we are confident in the strength of the surety company, Liberty Mutual, which is now responsible for the completion of and payments toward the project. Additionally, the District has an agreement to continue with the current subcontractors. The District’s ability and willingness to support the surety company and the current subcontractors with our entire construction team will help bring us to a mutually beneficial and expedited project completion.

 

Given a strong plan to move forward, we are optimistic and confident for a successful finish of the SVMS Classroom and Multi-Purpose Room project. We will provide an update to the community when a revised timeline is available.
