Project Challenges:
  • Permit approval was delayed due to site constraints during design. This required at least 3 iterations of the site work design due to the space constraints.

Bowen Resourceful:

  • The project team provided an alternate to the RFP design, which revised the building layout to improve operations.
  • This layout provided a cost savings to the owner versus the initial design.
  •  Deployed lessons learned from other NJAW projects.
  • Based on owner request, Bowen paid special attention to cash flow, and proactively coordinated schedule and client cash flow needs through project completion.

Bowen Responsive:

  • The project team utilized building information modeling (BIM) to develop this design. Owner preferences and needs were addressed while walking the 3D model to avoid any issues well before construction mobilization.
  •  Commissioning involved management of filter media waste without a cost or schedule impact.

Bowen Results:

  • Project team substantially completed the facility within the owner’s desired completion date, even after mobilization was delayed approximately 3 months due to permitting issues.
  • This was a Zero Injury/Zero Incident project.
