About the Project

The SSEC APEX crews had a very short time windows to complete work in between various phases of construction.  Additionally, we were working on active airport runways with continuous air traffic.  Coir 500 netting is not a standard stocked project and had to be a special ordered over a year in advance from India, so pre-planning was critical.

How We Solved It

Our teams had to ramp up fast with multiple crews in between completed construction phases. Utilizing special FAA radios our PM would listen to air traffic and direct crews and equipment when planes were cleared for take-off and landings of passanger planes.  Because of our industry relationships and years of experience, we worked with our suppliers 1 year prior to secure coir product in time.
