The construction of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community Justice Center is well under way. After the groundbreaking took place in February, much has happened behind the construction fence, leaving onlookers a bit curious.
According to Au’ Authum Ki Senior Project Manager Jose Lopez, Au’ Authum Ki and Kitchell Construction (AAK-KCI) received a phase 2 drawing permit set on June 15. Re-sequencing of construction activities was done in order for subcontractors to keep working in lieu of being pulled off the jobsite.

- The concrete subcontractor began digging Building B footings instead of beginning at the basement of Building A.
- After the concrete subcontractor completed digging footings, rebar was installed.
- The structural steel subcontractor delivered anchor bolts and templates for the concrete subcontractor to install.
- The concrete subcontractor was able to pour approximately 120-130 yards of concrete during the week of June 15.

“The project is currently on track. The design has been completed, all of the contracts with the owners and subcontractors have been awarded, and we are on schedule to be completed late fall 2016,” said Lopez. “We are doing really well from the underground and we [started] vertical structural concrete walls during the week of July 20. All of the utilities in the underground have been completed for Building B, and right now we are working on Building A. So far the progress is excellent and we’re right on schedule.”
