Puesto Case Study

The San Diego Police Headquarters at Seaport Village was constructed in 1939 and was at the time the largest police headquarters in the world. The historic landmark was readapted to house delicious restaurants and fashionable boutiques – including Puesto, which transformed the original building’s jail cells into a contemporary indoor/outdoor dining space.

During the Puesto project, Jaime Partners negotiated several change orders from the electrical subcontractor. The changes occurred due to modifications made to the kitchen layout during construction. For each change order, we documented all instructions sent to the subcontractor and filed it with the Construction Bulletin including descriptions of tasks and drawings. The subcontractor presented change orders totaling $63K. However, due to the documentation we submitted to the Construction Bulletin, we found nearly 23% of redundancy in the change orders and had them eliminated.
