Lean, Innovative, and Unique Project Solutions

The work site had limited space for material laydown and the new fence line was in close proximity to energized bus and equipment. The project team did an excellent job planning each activity to ensure the team stayed outside the minimum approach distances and avoided inadvertent equipment contacts.
