Special Project Considerations
Due to the large extent of the work on this project being mechanical in nature, ABM Mechanical served as the general contractor. This required ABM to be responsible for the maintaining the overall project schedule. Because the work consisted of renovations to a school, the project timeframe was limited to the length of summer vacation. Despite the tight project timeframe ABM finished the project in time for the school to resume in September.
