Weather: Warm then Cold then Warming; high winds on Thurs.; slight precip. - temps 18-65.

B2
o 10 new 4th floor mods were installed, 5 on Tuesday and 5 on Friday, bringing the
total number of mods installed to date up to 64, 6.9% of the 930 total; 17 more
4th floor mods to go.
o Two 3rd floor mods, previously installed, were removed in order to do gasket
repair, according to Skanska, and then re-installed. The two were in addition to
a third 3rd floor mod which was removed/reinstalled the previous week.
o 4th floor mods were delayed by 3rd floor mod gasket repairs and by windy
weather on Thursday when 3 mods were delivered overnight Wed/Thurs but
none were installed during the day.
o In the basement and ground floor levels plumbing piping, ductwork, electrical
conduit work, block wall and door installation continued. No further spray-on
fireproofing was performed at the ground floor level due to warmer weather
being inconsistent and due to other on-site factors. There was no further work
related to finishing the connections between the B2 and Arena basements. Both
knockout panel areas still need to be completed.
o The project continued to fall further behind schedule. The latest (11/25/13)
project schedule transmitted to STV forecasted a TCO in January, 2015.
According to the schedule, mod installation was to have reached the completion
of the 9th Floor (261 mods, 28% of the 930 total) by 3/14/14. The delay in mod
production and installation could impact the Jan. 2015 TCO date down the road.
If lost time is to be made up it requires mod production at the Navy Yard to
somehow accelerate. A new schedule was requested from Skanska early the
week ending 1/31 and again on 3/10. Skanska responded to STVs 1/31 request,
and FCR to its 3/10 request, saying after it was revised it would be shared.
o On the 10/16/13 ESD/Consultant site visit to Building 293 at the Navy Yard, FC
Skanska stated its goal was to reduce module manufacturing time from one
month per floor to one week per floor. However, the B2 11/25/13 schedule
assumes 2 or more weeks production timeframe per floor. The number of mods
per floor are: 27 (Floors 2-4); 36 (Floors 5-19); 29 (Floors 20-23); 20 (Floors
24-32); 8 (Floor 33) and 5 (Floor 34). Mod production began on 7/24/13. The
2nd floor mods were earlier reported to have been completely finished the week

of 1/17/14 when the 3rd floor mods were reportedly also finished. However,
walk-throughs of the 2nd floor mods installed at the B2 site beginning on 2/6/14
revealed that many were not in fact complete. Some installed mods, it turned
out, did not have appliances, sinks and toilets installed. In some cases flooring
and wall work was not finished. This work on the 2nd floor will have to be
completed on site in addition to the replacement of water leak-damaged ceilings,
walls and floors (and possibly other elements such as electrical). Carpeting and
hung ceiling work in the east-west corridor of each floor was always planned to
be done on site after utility mate-line is completed. Encouragingly, the 3rd floor
mods that have been opened up for inspection do appear to be complete and
