Challenges Faced During the Job and Royal’s Solution
Excessive underground site congestion of new and existing services was solved with thorough coordination and cooperation between trades and detailed shop drawings for the joint trench from the existing electrical vault in the street and the building entrance. The above ceiling work of all trades was extensive. 6 months were spent in overhead coordination meetings with all trades and was successfully installed with a ¼” tolerance between systems.
