Scope and Content Note

This series contains the "central files" compiled by the Walsh-Corbetta Joint Venture during its management of construction of the South Mall main platform superstructure, health department laboratories, and meeting center. The series contains a set of files on subcontractors engaged by Walsh-Corbetta and a slightly larger set of "Miscellaneous Files" documenting numerous aspects of project management. The subcontractor files include correspondence regarding adherence to contract specifications and prices of materials and labor; proposals for contract change orders; payment requests and claims for reimbursement of costs for necessary work not covered by contract; arbitration documents; and claims for compensation for losses sustained due to delays caused by the state.

The "Miscellaneous Files" include legal documents relating to law suits filed by equipment/material suppliers contesting payment amounts; projected South Mall project cost budgets; weekly progress, labor, payroll, and productivity reports; contract negotiation correspondence (Walsh-Corbetta contract with the State Office of General Services); Walsh-Corbetta performance and payment bond documents; fire, health, and safety program documentation; and Walsh-Corbetta operating committee meeting minutes, agendas, and attachments. Operating committee meetings typically address project status, schedules, financing, personnel, and subcontractor claims or law suits.
