by ISC, albeit on a smaller scale. Barton Malow was the lead on that
project and shared its experiences and practices with Okland when
it came time to plan the PIR improvements. "We're partnered with
Barton Malow on this project," Kubricky says. "They brought the
project to us."
Barton Malow contributed to the preconstruction effort and
sequencing. Okland representatives visited Daytona several times to
take notes on how Barton Malow handled the construction process.
The PIR construction team also includes a superintendent and a
project engineer from Barton Malow, although the rest of the field
staff is from Okland.
"They bring the lessons learned, making sure we leverage their
success on Daytona while avoiding all the pitfalls," Kubricky says.
"This is something new for Okland. We haven't built this kind of
venue before."
Okland is acting as the lead for PIR and is responsible for much of
the value-engineering to trim cost. When they were originally envisioned, the PIR improvements were expected to cost as much as $250
million. Since then, Okland worked with ISC and its subcontractors
to discover materials and design changes to save money, resulting
in the $178 million budget. "We had to take $70 million-plus out,"
Kubricky says. "We had to re-look at everything but we gave them
pretty much everything they asked for."
Another area where Okland learned from Barton Malow was in
the race ready operations, the preparation that occurs before a race.

key to the PIR project.

Although PIR is undergoing substantial changes, the venue continues to hold NASCAR and IndyCar races throughout construction. To
avoid disrupting events, the shutdown process begins about a week
before a race and the total downtime is usually about nine days.
That's not to say that all work ceases. During shutdown periods,
Okland reviews construction progress and continues to coordinate
with subcontractors so they can move quickly as soon as construction resumes.

Building Speed
Like the stock cars zipping around the oval, speed is the key to the
PIR project. Work began in mid-February and is scheduled to finish
before the Can-Am 500 in November 2018, giving Okland about
21 months to complete the work. "We had to get this designed and
permitted in a six- to seven-month window," Kubricky says. "That
was quite a challenge for our design team."
To speed up the process, Okland broke the project into 10 packages
that could be individually reviewed by the city. That way, the com-
