Scheduling Project

Client Name: Black & Veatch

MDC® was retained by our client to determine if the utility had contributed in any material way to the problems associated with either the removal or installation of the new generators. MDC® developed a detailed analysis of the problems encountered during the execution of the removal and installation work. MDC® determined that much of the delay in the installation of the generators was due to delay by a subcontractor responsible to Raytheon. MDC® also determined that additional delays were the result of inadequate verification by the contractor. Thus, the majority of the underlying conditions that caused the excess costs were not due to problems created by our client.
