Christman is wrapping up all remaining items. They have draft versions of the closeout documents completed (waiting on a few remaining warranty documents). The drafts are currently under review with the design team before being finalized and provided to ACC. Landscapers still owe the College a few replacement trees at the building and at the remote lot. We are still working to coordinate a final visit by State Construction.
