Here are some of the Change Orders, err excuse me, the Construction Change Directives issued by the City for the Stadium. Take a look and see if you think they are realistic and timely for the completion. Was the addition of 70 some odd televisions necessary for the opening of the ballpark. Who designed the original plans that they didn't have the necessary "exit" signs. And was it really the developers fault to add them weeks before the completion date and then expect the project to be code compliant?
I think the City hired the architect and it was their responsibility to be code compliant. Now I know things happen, a vent in an elevator shaft additional electrical connections for signage, these things happen, but not weeks before a scheduled opening if your timetable makes sense.
Yet, the Hartford Stadium Authority continued to say they were on schedule and on time for a May 17, 2016 opening
, anyone looking at the extensive Construction Change Directives would have to realize that.
I think the City is going to have a hard time proving their "innocence" with the delays before this mess gets before a Judge and we will pay.
Fix it and get the Stadium open, stop the nonsense, Luke
