Countywide will be performing the plumbing scope of work for this design-build project, teaming with Randall Lamb Associates. This is another project with Kitchell, this time working as GE Johnson Kitchell, a Joint Venture. The project is broken out into seven portions across three sites and phases: Mission Ruins and Restrooms, Furnace Creek Ranch, Retail/Food and Beverage, Town Hall, Warehouse, Furnace Creek Inn, Pool Amenities, Casitas, and Kitchen.

The temperatures in Death Valley historically average above 90°F from April to October, and thereby necessitate special attention to the Heat and Illness Prevention Plan. All three phases will have construction activity during the summer months. The estimated labor hours had to be adjusted to account for the mandatory break times for “rest, shade, and water.”
