At the City Council’s meeting on January 13, 2015, the Council and the community asked for more transparency for the close-out of the Newport Beach Civic Center project, as well as “lessons learned” about the project. As a result, City staff has prepared the following:

  • We have posted the contracts, change orders, and related information associated with the design and construction of the Civic Center project (click here to view/search).
  • We provided the Council and the public with our “lessons learned” as the Civic Center project went forth.
  • We attempted to capture every question asked at the January 13, 2015 meeting – and we answered them here.

We hope that this information is helpful and informative. If you have any questions about the information, please do not hesitate to ask us either by return e-mail or by phone.
