The new seats will be ready ..., 27 June 2013 [cached]

The project is going to finish on time and within its budget, a rare occurrence for a huge construction project, said Stuart Zadra, project manager for Hammes Co., a Brookfield construction management which is overseeing the project for the Green Bay Packers.
Zadra said the renovation was “difficult and complicated,” but construction crews were able to overcome the obstacles and complete it on time.
“We have flexible in terms of the way we completed the project because it was not like building an office building or a hotel,” said Zadra, as he walked through the new atrium on the northern end of the stadium recently. “We were renovating a stadium that was still very active. We had people, other than construction crews, in here everyday. And some days, we had more than 60,000 people on our construction site.” Hectic work site In all, 4,200 construction workers went through the project’s safety training program. Zadra said an average of 400 workers were on the site daily, with the peak employment at about 1,200 during the winter and spring of 2002, the most hectic part of the project.
Zadra said the key to getting the project done on time and within budget were the flexibility of the construction crews and the Packers. He said construction managers were continuously looking for ways to speed up the schedule, sometimes at a higher price. “There is no doubt the economy helped this project especially as we went along. There were also a lot of construction workers looking for work and wanting to work on this job. Timing is everything and on this project, things have just worked out for the best.” Stuart Zadra, Hammes Co.
Zadra and Jones said the project benefited from a number of factors, including a sluggish economy which lowered material prices, three mild winters that allowed crews to accomplish more work than planned and a strong workforce that took a lot of pride in the project.
On the steel purchases, the bids were not only lower than expected, they were all within the same range, something that is unusual in construction bidding, Zadra said.
“There is no doubt the economy helped this project especially as we went along,” Zadra said. “There were also a lot of construction workers looking for work and wanting to work on this job. Timing is everything and on this project, things have just worked out for the best.”
Zadra said construction crews also worked very closely with the Packers and architects to limit the amount of change orders on the project. While there were some change orders, they were no where the level or for the amount of money that would be expected on a project of this size, he said.
“I think the biggest claim we have out there right now is in the thousands of dollars range,” he said.

That's because the club got plenty of bang for its buck as subcontractors eager to take part in the project produced competitive bids on everything from steel to landscaping, said Stuart Zadra, project director for the Hammes Co.
"Nobody works for free, but the opportunity to be involved in a once-in-a-lifetime project helped us put up more of a building that anyone envisioned," Zadra said.

Stuart Zadra, project director at Lambeau for the Hammes Co., said Wednesday that 1,000 workers are working each day on the job site and $900,000 worth of construction is being done on the average day.
Zadra said the most noticeable change inside the stadium is the width of the new main concourse, which is roughly three times wider than that of the original stadium built in 1957.
The project, which is expected to be completed in August 2003, has a number of facets scheduled for this summer.
Green Bay Packers officials are expected to leave their space in the administration building and move to their new quarters July 15.The team's administrative staff also will move to new offices on July 29.
Those two moves will clear the way for demolition of the administration building and private boxes on the north side of the stadium.
Zadra said two permanent gates on the west side of the stadium will be completed for the Aug. 26 exhibition game against the Cleveland Browns.
Two other gates, on the east side of the stadium, will be in use but will not be finished.The press box area located in the southwest section of the stadium will be open and ready for use in August.
Work continues on the new private boxes on the east and west sides of the stadium.
Zadra said it was not clear how many of the new general admission seats on the west side of the stadium will be available for the 2002 season.Most of the new club seating on the east side of the stadium will be ready this season.
The project is financed in part by Brown County taxpayers on a half-cent sales tax.

Stu Zadra of Hammes Co., the project manager for the three-year reconstruction of Lambeau Field, told reporters Wednesday that the construction plans will be adjusted as the playoff games are played.
Because those plans call for a new set of luxury boxes to be completed in time for the 2002 season, virtually every day of the off-season is crucial.
Zadra said after the last game ends, a 48-hour window will begin for utility disconnections and for the Packers to remove any items from the old boxes, which were built 17 years ago.For two weeks after that, a demolition crew will do an interior sweep of the area, which has been dubbed "the red zone," and remove all the glass.
"Then we'll bring in two crawler backhoes with scissors to pick away at the steel and drop it into the zone," Zadra said."The plan is to demolish the boxes without impacting the new construction and without impacting the old stadium."
The original stadium bowl will be preserved as the centerpiece of the renovated stadium, which will have 10,000 additional seats, a second-level concourse and a large atrium that includes the Packer Hall of Fame, Packer Pro Shop and other amenities.
Zadra said two-thirds to three-quarters of the new boxes are already built for the most part, but they can't be completed until the old boxes are history.If the Buccaneers lose Saturday, the demolition plan goes into effect Sunday evening.
But if Tampa beats Philadelphia and then St. Louis, and if Green Bay beats San Francisco Sunday and then Chicago next week, setting up that Jan. 27 game at Lambeau, Zadra said subcontractors' work on the new boxes will be overlapped and their schedules will be compressed to get back on the original schedule.
"We have always anticipated doing the demolition work in two 10-hour daily shifts," he said."We expect that to take about six weeks."
Crews are still confident the work can be completed on time.The mild winter has been a plus - Zadra estimated the work is about two weeks ahead of the original schedule.
"Everyone likes working in this weather," Zadra said."Walk out there today and they're in T-shirts.That beats being bundled up in a parka."
While the new luxury boxes will be installed this summer, the full stadium is not expected to be completed until the fall of 2003.
