Beginning at the Swan Island Combined Sewer Overflow Pump Station, the Portsmouth Force Main Segment 1 and 2 extends 11000 lf of micro-tunneled pipeline to the Columbia Blvd Wastewater Treatment Plant.

All of these contracts have had schedule issues and claims related to time and extended overhead. Responsibilities include Preparation the estimating for the changes on the subcontracts on the ESCSO and attend and participate in all of our negotiations for the Pump Station.

Responsibilities include review and analysis of the baseline schedule, as built and monthly update schedules, monitoring and evaluating physical progress to assure that the general contractor is performing the work in accordance with its schedule. Review the project schedule each month for the ESCSO. The project has had numerous schedule evaluations to adjust for seasonal weather issues and major equipment deliveries and such. The consequence is that the team has managed the project to meet the contract time milestones successfully.

Prepare the monthly summary report, which includes the updated schedule, summary of construction, city forces, progress photos, schedule issues, cash flow, cost event summary and contingency expenditures against the cost to date.

In addition, the responsibility of reviewing subcontract change orders, and provides independent projection comparison of the schedule estimate at completion to the general contractors. Several of these changes required schedule analyses of the subcontract durations.
