Murray Company description: Our scope consisted of; sanitary sewer, industrial waste, fire water, domestic water, storm drain, storm water, and harvesting cistern.

The project start date was delayed, which in turn, caused different trades to compete for real estate on-site. The location of the job created additional challenge with little to no lay down area. Material deliveries required precise schedule coordination with the on-site project team and work in place. The size and shape of the project site made for further difficulty in maneuvering large equipment. We met every milestone during the course of this project including unexpected design alterations, while sustaining zero recordable injuries and no lost time.
