Progress continues on Ag building renovation, construction
(Seguin) -- Each day, Guadalupe County continues to get closer to having a mold and asbestos free AgriLife building. Construction on the building located on Live Oak Street remains on track.

That's according to Commissioner Precinct Two Kyle Kutscher. Kutscher, who is the lead on this project, says the first phase of getting the building back in working order is almost complete.
 
"Currently in the AgriLife building, we're about 90 to 95 percent complete with the interior de-mold.--- getting out the walls that need to be removed, getting the old A/C system that is going to be replaced out all of the ductwork where a majority of the mold problems were. We did find some additional mold behind that duct work and some of the sheetrock which again was demolished and taken out. We started framing the new interior walls in the areas that are going to be configured differently and are about half way or 50 percent done complete and done with the electrical rough-in right now," said Kutscher.
 
Overseeing the project is Sullivan Contracting Services. Kutscher says so far, Sullivan and the Architect Lyndsay Thorn, of ThornGraves, have been successful in taking care of any potential hurdles that often times go along with such types of projects.
 
"The total project timeline was talked about at about five months -- the critical path and what we're calling a critical path for the AgriLife building and the lead times that were really unknown were the elevator for the building, the roof replacement and basically some of the site work and concrete for the elevator shaft. Those things have moved along in a timely manner so far so everything looks to be on track at this point for a four to five month timeline," said Kutscher.
 
The county in the fall was forced to relocate all of its programs housed at the building to the Seguin ISD Mary B. Erskine Health Science Academy on College Street. County officials felt that the threat of mold posed a danger to not only those employed at the building but also to the hundreds of citizens and students who utilize that building on a regular basis.
