Finishing Construction at the Onset of a Pandemic

Joe Kadow – Senior Project Manager, Jeremy Herndon – Project Manager & Greg Pulaski – Superintendent

The COVID-19 pandemic hit Colorado during the last four months of construction. Our team leadership worked closely with Mines to implement procedures and best practices following the applicable government guidelines. W.E. O’Neil set up a mobile testing lab, implemented a contact tracing management plan with QR codes, installed custom-built handwashing stations, and implemented strict site cleaning protocols. Managing an active outbreak and COVID-19 exposures led to a 25% reduction in the workforce, but our team was able to accelerate the schedule and get students moved in for the fall semester.
