Commissary Architectural & Refrigeration Upgrades – Fort Bragg, NC

Project Scope

Caddell’s challenge at the Fort Bragg Commissary was to perform a total $8.2M architectural and refrigeration upgrade at an existing operating facility to be completed in just 382 days while customers continued to shop uninterrupted and unimpeded seven days per week. Mission accomplished. In fact, the store reported more sales during construction than at any other period in its operation. Close coordination with the store management was combined with a detailed phasing plan. This plan successfully protected and isolated shoppers from the work, including constant reconfiguration of temporary barriers and meticulous noise and dust control.

“Pull Planning saved our schedule and gave us a practical way forward. This intense interaction with the subs also identified some schedule busting elements that the design documents had missed. We not only met our original schedule completion date, but finished critical activities early and ended the project with an official “Outstanding” performance rating in all categories— including scheduling.”
