J.L. Richards & Associates Limited (JLR) was retained for the design tender and construction administration of a new maintenance facility. The maintenance facility includes nine bays to service equipment, fabricate components, and test various apparatus. The shop area was equipped with a 50-tonnes and 20-tonnes bridge crane. The two-storey facility was complete with offices, open work areas, a warehouse, lunchroom, men’s and women’s dry, an electrical shop and overall shop area.
One of the challenges of this project was the delay in completion due to the problems related to the original contractor insolvency issues. JLR was able to overcome this challenge and efficiently work with the new contractor.
