The Petroleum Club needed to replace their HVAC system and complete some remodeling, but were only willing to close for one week as not to inconvenience its members by being closed (never mind the loss of business revenues by not being open for business). They also instituted a stiff penalty of over $5,000 liquidated damages per day that the work went over schedule.
KEGLEY, Inc. made the first cut when two other general contractors said it couldn’t be done in one week. One even asked for additional compensation for each day ahead of schedule they were. KEGLEY, Inc. was chosen to complete the work.
Our subcontractors coordinated work 24 hours a day to meet the deadline. The General Manager, Peter Mueller, stayed at his office around the clock because he wanted to ensure the job was completed on time.
With the building in the flight range of the San Antonio International Airport, we had to coordinate the removal of the old HVAC units on the top of the seventh floor with the Federal Aviation Administration. We were only allowed to use cranes tall enough was on Sunday morning.
With a 24-hour construction schedule, our construction team pulled it off. KEGLEY, Inc. completed the project two days ahead of schedule.
“When other contractors saw the amount of work we wanted completed in the allotted time was not possible, Kegley Inc. proved them wrong!”
