We recently asked our contractor to provide us with the most conservative forecast for the 4825 Glenbrook Road project's schedule, based upon the knowledge we gained during our efforts under the first tent location at 4825 Glenbrook Road, plus past high probability operations at Spring Valley. Many in the community are aware that as we encountered numerous challenges under the first tent location, including a large amount of American University Experiment Station debris, more soil than expected, and an extensive amount of concrete related to the retaining walls and house structure, the schedule kept moving further out.
This new project schedule indicates that we will complete high probability work in winter 2016/2017. Then the remaining low probability work would start in the winter of 2017, with an estimated completion in the spring of 2017. Site restoration would follow, and the property returned to American University in the summer of 2017. The 2017 completion date forecasted in this revised schedule assumes that we will encounter the same types of delays and roadblocks that we did during the first tent location. The schedule for completion will always be fluid and can change either direction, depending on what we encounter under the next two tent locations. Our goal, however, is to continue to work safely and effectively so that we can finish earlier than 2017.
