Excitement is building as construction progresses on the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center and the deadline quickly approaches.
Although the 25-week timeline for the project is aggressive, Brian Brown, Senior Project Manager, and Mark Hourigan, President, are both confident that the facility will be completed on time. However, there are a few more milestones to reach before the project is complete. We outline the major ones below:
If you were to visit the training center today, you would see ongoing progress. First, landscaping and irrigation trim-out continues to be a focus. Since the sod was placed on the fields a few weeks ago, watering the fields is imperative to keep them looking beautiful for when the players arrive for training camp. The grass is beginning to take root and the turf has already been cut 3 times!
Other ongoing work includes:
- Access road installation
- Walking path stone for pedestrians
- Interior finishes
- Mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) trim-out
Starting today, June 6th, paving will begin in the parking lot of the facility.
Then, the next major milestone, inspection begins. The first run of the Bureau of Capital Outlay Management (BCOM) inspections will occur next week. This group is responsible for enforcing the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code and assures compliance with life safety and code requirements in design and construction of the facility.
Additionally, x-ray equipment will be arriving on June 11th for Bon Secours. Park fitness and musical equipment will arrive around the same time.
Washington Redskins staff arrival
As early as July 1st, Washington Redskins management can begin prepping the fields and the facility. The football players will arrive in Richmond on Wednesday, July 24th, and training camp begins the next day on July 25th. Practices will be open to the public starting July 26th.
As Mark Hourigan said in his interview with SportsRadio910, fans who come to watch practices during training camp will get a true intimate experience, being up close to the players at this unique facility.
