Another significant challenge was the 24-hour coordination and scheduling for the owner-furnished, on-site batch plant, which supplied concrete for the entire project. This became increasingly difficult as the project progressed through seasonal changes. The temperature extremes necessitated late starts on cold weather mornings and night paving as well as batching with chilled water, during the hot South Carolina summers.
APAC also received letters of commendation from James Lee, Area Manager for Global Performance, the owner's construction management firm, as well as Jim Kriss, P.E. Vice President of AVCON, Inc., the pavement design engineer, who had oversight of the pavement construction.
Despite encountering the constantly changing project phasing and other challenges, APAC and its team of subcontractors consistently met owner’s project schedules and milestone dates. APAC successfully provided the owner a quality paving project on time, all the while maintaining a safe, accident free workplace for crews and others working in and around the area.
