Project Description

EXCEL’s meticulous planning and flexibility was a key factor that facilitated the resolution of these obstacles before and during the build. EXCEL became the owner’s “right hand” and took the lead on scheduling through an innovative communication strategy. Our team remained proactive, using the latest technology to facilitate rapid interaction among all project participants to expedite engineering, constructability, and procuring materials, which typically is the responsibility of other parties. EXCEL spearheaded frequent meetings to maintain consistent progress among all team members.

Project challenges consisted of overcoming numerous logistical obstacles, including a highly isolated location and the novel hindrances posed by COVID-19. EXCEL went the extra mile to ensure that every facet of this job site was examined to ensure worker safety. Performing work in a highly remote area posed exceptional safety hazards, but our team was diligent in addressing issues both proactively and on-site. The Coronavirus, wildlife, and language barriers also posed incredibly novel threats, but with an award-winning safety program, EXCEL was repeatedly praised by the owner.

With a sincere dedication to safety, diligent coordination, and comprehensive execution, we overcame these incredible trials to meet facility completion. EXCEL is committed to excellence in all we do, and we are proud to have been a part of this enormous success in New Mexico.
