    He may know what he is saying. It appears at this point that the stadium will not be ready before April 1 at the earliest. Looks like we are looking at LSU, McNeese & Southeastern as an option. Fabacher appears to be ruled out, it's just not feasible, but we knew that.

    I'm kinda shocked that we'd go to McNeese or Southeastern before Fabacher. Seems like Tulane or Zephyr Field would be a better option too. At least you'd get some fans over to make a fun weekend out of it.

    ---We use to go to LC for lil kid softball and some bball tourneys---maybe we could get the casinos to come up with a deal for some special rates meals, etc for Fri and Sat nights---Would give us a LC area presence with our number of players from Sulphur, Barbe, S Beau, and Kinder schools

    I would I think like that!!! Not sure of the financials --guess Mn N would charge something and get the concessions or whatever!!!

    Possibly UNO as well. Absolute shame that this AD is still drawing a paycheck

    I know it's not Lemoine company's fault we could not lock up the funding to
    Start the project on time. But I just don't understand why these guys take so many good weather days off?

    The Lemoine crew worked 7 days a week and sometimes at night to complete the end-zone at Cajun Field. some days they had as many as 50 working. But they knew they had to have the job completed by August. I would have to look back on the dates of the pictures I took from start to finish, but if I remember it was about 5 months. And that was a big job. Some say that the Tigue is a bigger job but from what I saw I don't think so. I guess baseball is not as important as football.

    Of course not....it took a man 15 years to get a new stadium after winning the several conference championships, regional championships, a World Series appearance etc etc. but we give a football coach a million dollars that can't win his own conference

    Frenchie someone has to pay the bills..... The football addition seems to have been handled correctly and the timeline and budget to get it done in that time was accounted for accordingly.

    That hasn't happened in baseball as we all know. I don't know why they aren't working today but on construction projects there can be a number of issues that can put a stop to projects. For example they will need an inspection prior to pouring concrete. If they are ready to pour they may be waiting on the inspection. I do know that the budget was stretched extremely thin. I have no doubt that when push came to shove we chose to put money into the stadium versus paying for more time in order to get it done quicker but with less amenities. Keep in mind that under federal labor law every one of those workers is making 1.5X more money after forty hours in a week. That can eat up a very large amount of money quickly. So today may or may not have been about overtime but I can guarantee you that there will be times when not working overtime will effect this project.

    Very good points. I know from experience that the city inspectors work less than banking hours and could give 2 ____s if it affects a construction schedule

    They can put a major hold on projects especially when trying to work on weekends

    This is where your thoughts should stop.

    I know you don't want to hear this but it is possible that they are on the contract schedule. If the critical path is not behind schedule then there is no need to work overtime. I wish i could find the post with the construction schedule posted. It was in june i think. If i could see that i could get a better idea of how they stand. Keep in mind construction schedule has NOTHING to do with baseball season and everything to do with contract time.

    Try this Helmut. Looked for it a while back and couldn't find it. Bored tonight so I looked again. Hope it's what you were thinking of. Print on my laptop is so small I can't read much of it.

    ---Helmut, I am not familiar with the impact that the hours have on the medical benefits with Obama care---but don't they try to keep the hours under 40 to not have to qualify for payment? I know some instances where hours are cut purposely by employers!!!

    Thanks that schedule had the completion of demolition on June 30 with project completion on Feb 27 2017 or 243 calendar days. The pile caps (what they are doing now) were to be completed on August 12 2016 or 44 days after June 30. We will be able to see how far ahead or behind schedule they are at the completion of the pile caps. I need to go back and see when the demolition was complete.

    Over time is one thing running two shifts is another. Most of what we saw on the other projects was running two shifts. Working on construction is very strenuous work especially in the heat so once you get over about 40 or 45 hours of working in the heat you have had it. Trust me on this.
