Pismo Preserve

Pismo Beach, CA (2018-present)

The Pismo Preserve conservation area and public trail system encompasses 880 acres of culturally sensitive land adjacent to Route 101 in Pismo Beach and unincorporated SLO County. The project includes improvements to Mattie Road and construction of visitor center facilities, parking areas, restrooms, large retaining wall systems, site utilities, bridges, paved ADA trails and archaeological displays. The project is complicated by the site’s cultural importance to Native American groups and will require the constant presence of archaeological consultants to monitor progress throughout construction.

Precision was originally engaged at the time of bid solicitation to provide pre–construction services including cost engineering, scheduling, constructability review, bid evaluation, value engineering and assistance with contractor selection. Due to the value that Precision was able to add during the pre–construction phase, the client subsequently retained Precision to provide the full suite of construction management services, with construction scheduled to begin in October 2018.

During the contractor selection process, Precision was able to identify value engineering opportunities which resulted in a 5% reduction to the construction budget. Additionally, Precision identified key errors and omissions in contractor bids that significantly enhanced the quality and accuracy of the bids and helped the client to proactively avoid large change orders and potential litigation. Precision is currently coordinating with the prime contractors, City and County staff, Chumash representatives, design consultants and archaeological monitors in preparation for the start of construction.
