Lean, Innovative, and Unique Project Solutions

Cianbro and FairPoint Communications completed this project in conjunction with an active MaineDOT road construction project. Cianbro worked closely with MaineDOT and FairPoint Communications to effectively plan work activities to ensure the project was completed on schedule and without time delays. Additionally, the project was located near the Atlantic ocean, and the resulting wind created additional project hazards when working in bucket trucks. Activity Planning was utilized to address safety concerns posed by the strong winds and the concurrent construction project.
