The preconstruction phase is well underway for the Las Cruces Community Competition Pool project, a 36,536 square foot aquatic facility being delivered by HB Construction as Construction Manager at Risk. HB is working alongside ASA Architects, the City of Las Cruces, and key industry partners to refine the design for construction success.
HB’s project team is eager to use integrative best practices for the project, a strategy that bridges the gap between design and construction. With design nearing 75% completion, the project team is now looking forward to selecting Design-Assist partners. These subcontractors will help inform system and product choices while finalizing design. Interested trade partners can contact firstname.lastname@example.org in order to receive project details.
By using an early procurement approach, the HB project team will look to uncover best value solutions for the City of Las Cruces. Potential benefits include lowering up front cost, eliminating construction issues, creating long-term energy efficiency savings, and even promoting ease of maintenance. The team is electing to bring on Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Concrete, and Pool Construction subcontractors at this stage.
A Familiar Face
HB Senior Project Manager Brian Rodriguez is leading HB’s project team at the pool.
“It’s exciting to work with the City of Las Cruces again. We’ve had great projects working together and I look forward to building this feature facility for the community,” said Brian Rodriguez.
Brian’s experience building the Las Cruces Regional Aquatic Center next door has been vital in understanding competition pool construction complexities. The new facility will include an Olympic-sized swimming pool, lobby and ticketing area, spectator seating, and locker rooms. Early on, Brian and the project team identified an opportunity to use BIM (Building Information Modeling) for the intricate pool piping and surrounding infrastructure.
The project is currently expected to break ground this spring.
