Challenges and Successes:

This project incorporates four distinctive sites, each with their own set of challenges and nuances. With that said, we were able to incorporate upfront coordination efforts and planning that in turn alleviated many problems that otherwise would have come to fruition. Close coordination with the client and client’s team allowed for issues to be addressed quickly and incorporated into the documents in a timely manner. Due to this effort the Construction Drawings were delivered ahead of schedule.
