Golden Gate Tennis Center
San Francisco, CA
San Francisco Parks Alliance
Parks and Recreation
The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department’s $27 million project, funded almost entirely through private donations, will transform the 125-year-old site into one of the best public tennis facilities in the nation and allow the public more than 20,000 hours of additional playtime each year. It will include 17 new USTA-regulation tennis courts, a sunken feature court, and a dedicated pickleball court. Off the court, players will enjoy a new 7,800 square foot clubhouse with a player’s lounge, recreation room, locker room and kitchen and a garden area for viewing, socializing and relaxing.
The renovated tennis center also includes a dedicated classroom to expand the Tennis & Learning Center (TLC), an innovative Rec and Parks program that provides after school tennis instruction, academic tutoring, and leadership development to youth from underserved San Francisco neighborhoods. TLC, which currently serves elementary school students, will launch a middle school program in the new facility.
HCI is responsible for leading, managing and coordinating the estimating effort to endure overall quality and timeliness of the estimates. We established the estimate format, estimated critical items including earthwork cut/fill, clubhouse/community center foundation, building skin and critical MEPS systems. Our bottoms-up estimate was used to negotiate the Guaranteed Max Price (GMP) contract with the CM/GC and will become the basis for managing contractor contingencies and verification of entitlement and negotiating change orders during construction. As Owners Representative for the Golden Gate Park Tennis Center, HCI is responsible for the development of the general conditions for the public and private scopes as well as the negotiation of the construction services agreement and guaranteed maximum price for the private scope of work. We are responsible for making adjusts to the project cashflow and schedule as required based on the bid results review all RFI's, responses, negotiate change orders. We will close out the finances of each package and reconcile the bookkeeping with Sf Parks Alliance. Finally, we will provide oversight to the coordination of the contracts, general conditions and scopes of work for the three construction packages.
