Con Edison Flushing Tunnel
2016 to 2017
- Concrete and Block Retaining Walls and Vision Barriers
WHAT MADE THIS JOB COMPLEX
The project presented several challenges. A design oversight in the structural improvements required field changes and adjustments. Permitting delays forced Posillico into an accelerated schedule to meet the end of year deadline which was necessary to maintain public funding. And the demolition of the existing headhouses required unforeseen asbestos and lead abatement.
HOW POSILLICO SOLVED IT
Posillico assisted Con Edison with the permit filings and increased its manpower by adding crews, extending shifts through overtime work. Posillico collaborated with the design engineer to quickly develop a suitable design solution for constructability issues and communicated with the Con Ed facility contacts to coordinate work alongside other subcontractors in order to maintain schedule.
