Ahtna Environmental Inc. performed a construction project involving design, repairs, and alterations to 13 water-damaged US Coast Guard family housing units located in Cordova, Alaska, an area that experiences an average of 206 days of precipitation per year including gale force winds, and intermittent snowfall and rain resulting in icy conditions. The project was time critical not only because work was performed while the units were occupied, but because of the risk of mold to human health, as well as structural failure due to water damage. Because Cordova is not accessible by road, AEI performed detailed upfront planning to procure and deliver by barge, all required materials and supplies within a single mobilization. Despite challenging working conditions, AEI completed the project ahead of schedule and to the full satisfaction of the housing occupants and the US Coast Guard.
