Delaware Valley Job Corps Project

The Delaware Valley Job Corps is a U.S. Department of Labor training center located in the historic St. Joseph’s Seraphic Seminary, a former Roman Catholic seminary, in Callicoon, NY. The property was sold to the federal government in 1977, and it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.

For this design-build project, KC teamed with HVRS, Inc. to provide design services for structural repairs, abandonment, and filling of a below-grade food storage vault.

During the design phase of the project, KC attended a field meeting and reviewed and approved the CLSM mix design. KC also developed construction and modification plans and specifications for the fill area and structural repairs, including restoration sections for asphalt.

KC conducted calculations for loads applied to existing walls. Details and calculations for CMU infill sections in an existing doorway and window opening were provided by KC, as well as sequencing, placement specifications, and notes. KC also provided EPA-compliant guidelines for sand blasting of steel and lead paint.

In the project’s construction phase, KC attended the pre-construction meeting, reviewed shop drawings and submittals, and responded to RFIs. KC also reviewed differing site conditions and suggested modifications for change order processing. KC reviewed test results and placement logs, and is also monitoring progress, as needed. KC has been observing on-site construction activities and will provide final sign-off on the completed project.
