PIVOX Corporation served as General Contractor for multiple specialty construction scopes of work for a multi-year, multi-firm in-situ bioremediation system construction project as part of PG&E’s Topock Compressor Station Final Groundwater Remedy Construction program.
Construction activities included site development and waste stream support during remediation and monitoring well construction, large-diameter bore-and-jack tunnelling, medium-voltage (12kV and 480V) electrical transmission and distribution, reinforced concrete foundation construction, facility vertical structure construction, facility MEP construction, and water treatment process piping construction. 95% of the contract value delivered through PIVOX’s GC was fully bonded and insured.
PIVOX worked with the Owner to identify qualified contractors, especially contractors with experience working within Owner facilities and contractors familiar with the site-specific complexities, hazards, and constraints. PIVOX developed bid documents, led the bid effort, and worked with the Owner to select contractors for each scope. Upon selection and contracting, PIVOX closely managed each contractor’s preconstruction and on-boarding effort, to make sure each contract mobilized on schedule and was prepared to meet all project requirements.
PIVOX managed all subcontractor activities on site, including providing dedicated on-site managers who had specific expertise in the type of specialty construction under their purview – ranging from well drilling/construction to industrial process/mechanical construction. PIVOX helped coordinate between contractors, identify potential issues, and coordinate with the Owner, engineers, and others to help resolve issues. PIVOX provided full financial management of each subcontract, and led all change management between subcontractors, engineers, and other stakeholders.
The project was delivered under 100% external stakeholder oversight and 100% QA oversight/inspection by a 3rd-party QA entity with zero compliance violations.
