Cornerstone convention center project will revitalize the City’s downtown.

Located in downtown Sacramento, the SAFE Credit Union Convention Center was originally built in 1974 and then expanded in 1996. The $180 million renovation and expansion is part of the City’s C3 project, along with the community theater and memorial theater, and will involve the portion of the building that was built in 1996 (east) and demolition of the 1974 (west) side. Two new exhibit halls will be built on the west increasing exhibit space from 137,000 to 160,000 SF. In addition, a new lobby, kitchen, café, 40,000 SF ballroom and meeting rooms will be built. On the east side, a new east lobby and meeting room space will be constructed.

O’Connor was hired by the City just prior to construction start and worked closely with the City and with the Contractor to generate the scheduling specifications and ensure a high-quality baseline construction schedule to successfully execute project planning right from the beginning of the project. In addition to providing detailed narrative reviews of the monthly schedule updates, including deep technical reviews of the critical path and changes made to those activities on a monthly basis, O’Connor schedulers also review delay fragnets and concurrent delays for all Contractor submitted time impacts.

Along with scheduling, we are also providing construction management, inspection, GMP review, change order review, labor compliance, and special inspection & testing services.
