New London community center construction delay will cost $230K

A six-month delay in breaking ground for the city’s new community center has so far increased the cost of the project by nearly $230,000. City officials are not ruling out heading to court to determine who’ll ultimately foot that bill. Construction of the planned 58,000-square-foot facility on the Fort Trumbull peninsula began in July, six months after the original start date. City officials said the delay was largely due to waiting for a state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection flood management certificate and a storm water and wastewater discharge permit. Project site subcontractor Giordano is requesting $29,433 for new labor, material, tool and equipment costs related to upcoming foundation excavation work.
