What’s the difference between a challenge and an obstacle? Attitude. Take, for example, our recently completed Costco warehouse in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
When we broke ground, we learned almost immediately that bedrock would be a problem. Despite numerous geotechnical borings, we discovered the job site had 400% more bedrock than anticipated. Yet, we immediately started working on a solution with more blasting and hydraulic breaking. At the same time, we brought in two concrete crushing machines—all without putting a dent in our schedule.
At the same time, Mother Nature had her say with a total of 83 weather days out of a 192-day construction schedule. Despite record rainfall and snow, we kept on falling back on a problem-solving mentality to ensure that things moved ahead.
The result? Not only did we finish on time, but this Costco warehouse registered the highest first-day sales of any location in the Southeast. We were glad to do our part. Because we don’t let anything stop us from hitting a deadline. Even when we’re between a rock and a hard place.
