29 Palms Marine Training Base
From a notional design created by Naval Surface Warfare Center – Corona Division, the project and scope of work was to install five new helicopter-access only, mountain-top, tower structures with solar powered systems all within an initial 120 day period of performance.
Due to training commitments our construction and flight schedule was literally thrown in the trash by the Bearmat Operations.
Not deterred, International Towers worked with the customer on new means and methods and ended up deploying the necessary equipment to all mountain tops such that on the eve of every day, ITI met with Bearmat and base operations to determine which mountain tops ITI could fly to the next day.
This everyday last-minute direction put ITI in the position of real-time planning for the work scope to be performed, logistical planning of crews, staging, determining the pick sequence necessary for fluid and effective operations, safe and effective rigging of materials for the helicopter picks that would need to occur – noting again the $15,000 per hour helicopter costs being incurred mandating the effective maximization and flight time utilization of helicopter resources.
A delivery within the contractual period of performance was truly a remarkable accomplishment.
