Although cold weather has thrown a few wrinkles into the mix, construction on the new Gillespie County Jail is progressing according to plan, county officials learned Monday.
“The project looks really good,” Gloria Barrera, of Vanir Construction Management, Inc., told commissioners meeting in regular session Monday, Jan. 27.
She said the new jail’s to-date construction could be judged on a three-fold basis, according to cost, schedule and quality.
As far as expense, the jail (which was bond-approved by voters up to a cost of $15 million) is still proceeding within its budget, Barrera said.
So far, the county has paid $1,266,308 to date, although some of the project’s more expensive items will come into play later in the schedule, she said.
