Lean, Innovative and Unique Project Solutions

Cianbro was one of six (6) contractors working on-site during the peak of the schedule.  This created many challenges with gaining access to work areas given the site congestion.  The team was able to effectively work alongside other subcontractors to coordinate the work and meet the customers schedule.
