The Claremont Country Club maintains historic building status by the City of Oakland. Phase I was an interior remodel of the ground floor recreation areas. Phase II & III were accelerated and consolidated into one project to meet the client’s aggressive timetable.
Phase 1 of the project included an interior renovation of the ground floor Grille Room, Main Bar, President’s Room and adjacent foyers. Phase 1 was completed in 2006 at a cost of $814,000. Phase 2 of the project included two major additions to the existing Club House Building, an exercise facility with an outside eating terrace above, and a ladies’ lounge and locker room addition. Phase 3 of the project included demolition of the existing swimming pool and a 1950’s style pool building which was replaced with a new state-of-the-art Olympic sized swimming pool and a Tudor-style pool support building including locker rooms and a kitchen/snack bar. Phase 3 also included major improvements to the project site, hardscape and landscaping.
Working in a design-build MEP effort with Overaa Construction, General Contractor, a major value engineering effort was undertaken to remove approximately $900,000 from the budget without a negative result to the project program or architecture. To accommodate an aggressive 13-month renovation schedule, we worked closely with the Club management, general contractor and design team to expedite decisions and implement cost-effective solutions to construction issues. We reported regularly to the Country Club’s long-range planning committee with regular revisions of the Contract Cost Control, CPM Schedule an action item list reviewed at each week’s OAC Team Meeting. Phases 2 and 3 were completed on schedule and with a refund from the contractor of $284,000 below the project GMP.
