Ford Rouge Heritage
The base scope of work included pavement and miscellaneous demolition, 25,000 feet of utility installation for fire, sanitary and storm lines, earthwork and fill operations including construction of over 1,000,000 square feet of building pads, rough and final grading, placement of 65,000 square yards of 8” concrete pavement and placement of over 100,000 tons of asphalt pavement.
The multiple tasks at hand required Angelo Iafrate to coordinate daily with both the Owner and the Construction Manager. Since existing plant operations could not be compromised, AICC created a detailed project schedule that not only tracked the duration of specific work activities, but also tracked resources, manpower and equipment, assigned to complete each of these activities.
While Heritage 2000 was not a “design-build” project, there were a total of forty-nine Construction Bulletins issued - an average of two per month. Management of these many changes required an extraordinary amount of coordination between the project management team and field operations staff to ensure that the appropriate changes in the scope of work were understood and that the contract drawings were reviewed and distributed to the appropriate personnel in a timely manner.
