We began work immediately to assemble a new on-site team, evaluate the status of the partially executed project and develop a phased construction plan to meet the client’s firm back feed date of Feb. 14, 2020. Within two weeks, we were up and running to use the full two-month time frame allotted to meet the initial project need date.
With every aspect of the project at differing stages of execution, we determined a standard, linear approach to construction and testing would not accommodate the tightened timeline. Instead, we leaned on the constant communication and ongoing coordination and flexibility afforded by an integrated team approach to execute in phases. This allowed us to sectionalize aspects of the testing and commissioning of each electrical and mechanical installation to capitalize fully on the limited time available.
We collaborated directly with the client to determine if the previously conducted work met its needs and our safety standards, and established a fluid plan to achieve both moving forward. During twice-daily meetings on-site with the client and field personnel, we discussed the work to be executed each day and plans to make up work that hadn’t been completed.
