The HWS construction is currently complete and operation is anticipated in summer of 2017.

From the owner’s perspective a large portion of the work for a project of this complexity was balanced in planning, executing, and closing out; this was owing to the dynamic nature and semi-agile project management approach used. The presentation will discuss the project trajectory, including background and focusing on critical areas for project success; Risk Management, Procurement Management, and Contract Management. Discussion will also include acquired lessons learned and some discussion on the construction phase.
