  • The proposal also assumes HRM contributing to the half-million per year expected maintenance costs.

    It also calls itself “phase I” and notes that HRM is expected to partner on phase II which looks like another 150 million or so.

  • Completely agree. Also worth noting that contingency costs for $$ estimate are only 6% on an “order of magnitude” cost. That is way way too low. Contingency ought to be 20% on that very rough estimate so the costs will are at least 10-15% , if not more, higher than stated in proposal
