Open communication builds a successful project.

Situated within Yale’s sprawling athletic complex that includes the Yale Bowl, baseball, lacrosse, softball and other fields, their new maintenance facility houses all the supplies and servicing equipment needed to keep their world-class athletics complex running. Housed within a 10,000 sq ft pre-engineered building, there were many challenges during the course of the project that required extra effort to keep all stakeholders informed in order to keep things moving along on schedule throughout the course of the project.

The area of land that was carved out for the new building was situated along the property boundary and required that all new utilities be brought in from an adjacent state road. This required heavy coordination not only with Yale but with the utility company, along with the neighbors whose houses abutted the new site. We worked diligently to bring these in with minimal disruption and kept all parties apprised of the work and minimize its impact on the surrounding neighborhood.

Ground was broken in July/August of 2020 and Covid-19 protocols were in place in order to create a safe work environment. Technology was implemented so that Yale project managers could check in remotely and see progress in real-time throughout without having to be on site. We had a hard deadline to pour the concrete pad for the building before the winter temperatures would freeze the ground – we were able to meet a November deadline of having all utilities and the foundation in place to receive the steel frame delivery by Thanksgiving on schedule. Within five weeks of delivery we had it erected and enclosed so that work could continue uninterrupted throughout the winter months. 

We remained the eyes and ears on the site throughout and posted updates on progress 2-3 times a week to keep all stakeholders in the loop on progress. Completed on schedule in June ’21, the new building includes a warehouse/work-bay area that has a hydraulic lift, industrial shelving/rack system, and a work bench area with compress air connections. New offices, a lunchroom, and locker rooms are also contained within. Site work was comprised of an asphalt paved driveway and parking lot, security gate, fencing, storage bays for earth materials, and an above-ground gas tank.
