Challenges & Solutions
- The project team was tasked with installing and coordinating wells for the building water supply
- The project location was 500 miles away from Toledo office
- This included a very extensive water treatment system and outbuilding to house all related equipment and booster pump for the fire suppression system. Underground storage cisterns were also installed for both the domestic water supply and fire suppression due to the low amount of water demand that could be provided to the building in emergency situations. Local jurisdiction had not come across a system of this size so there were multiple meetings and conference calls to make sure all code requirements and mandates were being met or exceeded. A large septic system was also installed which required us to install additional monitoring wells and two large winding permeable reactive barriers. This required additional coordination and involvement with a third-party testing agency who will continue to be involved in tracking groundwater quality over the next five years.
- This was was overcome by the management team spending additional time onsite to aid in the supervision and subcontractor management of the project. The project manager traveled to the site every week and dedicated an Assistant Project Superintendent on site full time for the second half of the project to ensure quality installation was implemented, materials were delivered to the site as needed, subcontractors provided and maintained adequate manpower, and all trades were in coordination with the plans, specifications, and owner requirements.
