This paper summarizes the construction of roughly 300 feet of game fence and two metal gates for the City Farm San Luis Obispo (SLO). The City Farm SLO is a nonprofit organization in San Luis Obispo, CA. They are focused on organic and sustainable agriculture. This paper will highlight the process for estimating, funding, scheduling, and constructing the fence and gates. This project aimed to provide a secure perimeter against pedestrians and wildlife. The project site is along the creek, attracting many unwanted guests. There were many obstacles to overcome throughout the project, from preconstruction to construction. Each phase had its own unique challenges. The first hurdle was obtaining funding. Many hours were spent calling local contractors and politicians until I finally received the money to complete my project. The second obstacle faced was the construction of the project. Finding the labor and time to complete the work was a challenge. Despite these, and multiple other obstacles discussed throughout the paper, the project was completed allowing the City Farm SLO to have an area protected against wildlife and pedestrians. The project was completed on time and within budget. Finally, the project fulfilled all items requested from the City Farm SLO.
