cKenney’s completed a massive mechanical systems installation project at a leading pharmaceutical manufacturing plant in Covington, Georgia.

THE CHALLENGE

There was no room for missteps with 278 mechanical systems to install and strict engineering and FDA quality regulations to meet. Facing an extremely fast-paced schedule, McKenney’s had to manage

coordination and construction activities along with more than 300 formal design changes and a complicated change management process.

THE SOLUTION

To manage design and field changes, McKenney’s assembled a change management team and developed a change management process while tasking our on-site resources and BIM team with identifying design inconsistencies. To keep construction

on schedule, we established a formal progress-tracking tool and manpower loading plans—and regularly held short interval “look ahead” meetings. We also developed a robust quality assurance quality control method and team for system turnover through a four-level walkdown process.

THE RESULTS

The team met very high quality standards and hit the originally scheduled startup date.
