Guam - The Guam Educational and Chamorro Facility is considered the biggest one but due to piling issues the completion has been delayed until May 2015.

As we reported, GEDA had discovered that 60 out of 260 piles that were installed were damaged. GEDA acting administrator John Rios says an on-site meeting was held earlier this week with contractor Inland Builders to discuss the project's task orders. "To tell you the truth, every week they have a meeting over at the site so why its important is because with a project this size, you need to make sure you have regular meetings and get updates to make sure things are done in order to be on schedule," he said.

Rios says tests and studies are still being conducted to determine the extent of the damage adding GEDA still stands that it is

The responsibility of the contractor to ensure those pilings is installed correctly. As we reported, Inland Builders stated the piling issues are not as a result of actions by the company as it believes it has followed specifications.
