Great News, friends! On Jan 25th, FOCCAS had a small brief ceremony, celebrating the ground breaking of the Intake & Holding Buidling, aka FOCCAS Building. Several of the members of the FOCCAS Board and other members, along with our contractor, Mr Tom Griffith were there on that cold January morning. We had a new bright shiny shovel and we took some pictures to include along with a story for the Crossville Chronicle.
Mr Mark Potts came later that day to begin the finer excavation work, digging footers and the trenches for all the drains. L'Hoist, a international materials management firm, with a plant in Crab Orchard, has donated 6 dump truck loads of 3/4" gravel and Mr Potts went to get a couple of loads for the driveway. There are a couple of pics included of the ground-breaking and the early progress.
Mr Griffith has been pouring over the plans and working with the City of Crossville Codes Enforcement Division to ensure that we build the safest, structurally sound and cost-effective facility that we can build.
Mr Griffith, Mr Fields and I have worked out a mutually acceptable Escrow Agreement with a standard draw schedule and a inspection arrangement that satisfies all parties. Mr Glen Rosenfeldt has agreed to be involved in this process. He is a non-FOCCAS member and has been involved in construction projects a large part of his career; he has a wide breadth of experience. I will be included in this process as well and report to the group on a regular basis.
