Progress to Date:
We have an excellent designer on staff – Patty Richardson of
Casa Linda Designs. She seems to be very
much in tune with the tastes of our community and has agreed
to provide a fixed price for her services from start to finish
allowing us to better control costs. Plus, she has worked
extensively with our general contractor, Shorbe Construction.
Our on-site project manager is Kelly Ayers from Shorbe Construction. Management and board
members have met with Kelly several times and he seems to
be focused on our needs and desires. John Shorbe, the owner,
will also be overseeing the project.
Work is complete in the Library, Billards Room, Fiesta Room,
Craft Room, Kitchen, Pool Area and landscaping in front of
the Community Center.
Work will begin on the expansion of the Fitness Center, new
conference room and refurbishing the locker rooms on
Monday, September 11.
The technology room and locker rooms will be closed during
the entire construction period which is expected to last
until Mid-October. The fitness center will remain open during most
of the construction but will have to close to run electrical,
HVAC, fire detection, sprinkler and TV lines. During the
construction, pool users are asked to use the courtside restrooms
so that they are not tracking water into the main area to use
the lobby restrooms. The technology club will have a couple of
computers available throughout the building. When necessary,
the fitness center will close and reopen as soon as the work is
approved by the Town of Marana.
