Construction Update – July 2014

At a special meeting on May 28, the Construction team decided to hire Naomi Kamiya as our project manager. Naomi comes to us with a BS in civil engineering, a general contractor’s license, and 25 years of professional construction management experience. She successfully led our sister churches, Eden UCC and First Congregational Church of Berkeley through their recent renovation projects. Naomi will represent our interests with both the architect and the contractor, and strive to keep the project on time and on budget. The whole team has been very impressed with her work so far.

The construction at 36600 continues, as the rough framing has been completed, and interior work has begun. From now on it will be harder to see progress, since most of the intense work is happening inside. By the end of June, the rough (i.e. inside the walls) electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and fire sprinkler equipment should be completed. The custom doors and windows for the building have been ordered and are being fabricated.

Marilyn Singer has been working diligently to arrange the elements of the kitchen for ease of use and organization, and she has been able to reuse many of the cabinets from the original kitchen.
