Project Challenges & Solutions

Schedule Challenges

The majority of the project occurred during the fall and winter. The weather encountered during this time of year caused setbacks in the schedule. Trans Ash was able to work closely with the owner to re-evaluate the schedule and modify the task priority list.

Rain & Flood Delays

During a flood event, the bridge used for crossing the river was closed and haul trucks had to be re-routed. This caused a significant impact to the haul distance so additional trucks were mobilized to ensure production rates were maintained.

Unexpected Complications

Trans Ash worked jointly with the design engineer and owner to implement the best solution to relocate a duct bank located in an unexpected location.
