Project Overview

Cumming’s Role
Cumming provided program management, construction management, project controls, and financial management services for this project, which utilized the lease-leaseback delivery method.

The Purpose Of This Project
The Anaheim High School Aquatics Center project consisted of the demolition of an existing 3,500-sq.-ft. grandstand; the extensive abatement and demolition of existing basement equipment; the construction of a new 38-meter x 23-meter shotcrete swimming pool, bleachers, and a new 2,600-sq.-ft. pool equipment building; the renovation of more than 16,000 sq. ft. of office space; and the construction of five new concrete basketball courts. The project also incorporated hardscape and landscape improvements to the surrounding swimming complex, including a new fire lane, as well as new decorative and chain-link perimeter fencing around the campus and athletic fields.
All work was performed while the high school campus was active. A logistics plan, developed by the Program Management Office (PMO), provided direction to the contractor that allowed the project to meet strict milestones, including the turnover of the showers/locker rooms prior to the beginning of the new school year. Through our expert application of program management, project controls, and financial management services, we were able to meet this important milestone and ultimately help deliver the project under budget.

Project Outcome
The Anaheim High School Aquatics Center project was delivered under budget. The final guaranteed maximum price for the project was $12,873,280, with a construction deductive change order of $86,043. The final construction cost savings, including budgeted contingencies outside the GMP, was $1,317,178. The general contractor achieved substantial completion on October 30, 2019, 61 days after the originally planned schedule. The causes of the extended time were due to unforeseen conditions and excessive rain delays. Although the project did not meet its original substantial completion date, it did succeed in meeting the milestone of turning over all of the facility locker rooms before the start of the new school year in August 2019.
