i just submitted my bid for the electrical work involved in the construction of a brand-new pepsi-cola bottling plant, here in ohio! this is for the complete package,......production and process controls...MCC panel,(36 buckets), all stainless conduit and panels in syrup room with all watertight and sanitary wiring devices, as well as the office spaces and administrative areas!.. [Linked Image].....a thought occurred to me, (i occasionally do have a coherant thought!.. [Linked Image]), after i submitted this massive pile of paperwork.....--> i wonder what kind of "A-team" i could put together to do this job, using only the manpower and resources of all you guys on this forum? that would be a sight to behold, and the stuff great movies ae made of!.. [Linked Image]....i'll bet this would be the best-wired, and most NEC-compliant pepsi-cola plant anywhere!...of course, it might run a little past the deadline for completion, since i'm sure the job would get "hung up in committee" before the actual work began!...LOL!

just a thought.... [Linked Image]

Be sure to show us the feather in your cap when it's done!

ohio
the job wont be awarded till nov. 1st, but i'm already doing some prelimenary planning. it looks like the deadline for completion is june 1st, 2003. i'm looking at running four crews. one crew for the outside security and parking lot lighting, one crew to begin the strut racks and run pipe, one crew to focus primarily on the office and administrative spaces, and one crew to pull wire and install boxes and devices. i plan to run 2 shifts with the piping crew and outdoor lighting crew working days, and the other 2 crews working nights. one thing the GC pointed out, is that the other crafts are prolly going to work one shift only...so, my 2 shift idea might work to our advantage. any ideas you guys might have would be greatly appreciated. this is a big one for me, (six figures)!!!! we are a union shop, and the local here is ready to fill my manpower needs, as they become necessary.. [Linked Image]

oh yes...i will have a job coordinator, and a lead-man on each crew, that reports to him.

any help or ideas from you guys here will be greatly appreciated


thanx... [Linked Image]

When you buy donuts for the crew. Get them from a bakery, not from Dunkin Donuts. You'll get more work out of your men.
