Challenges were no match for this project’s success
One of the biggest challenges presented by this project was its remoteness. Not only did we have to truck in materials from hours away, but the local subcontracting market was not large enough to staff the build. Woodstone planned and budgeted for bringing in companies from around the country to execute the project.
At one point, massive fires spreading across central Washington created a delay. After burning hundreds of thousands of acres, the wildfires finally got to within 6 miles of the build site. That was when Woodstone made the decision to abandon the site for the safety of our personnel. Fortunately, the fires were halted prior to reaching the project and we were able to get back to work.
Even with the additional costs associated with bringing in non-local subcontractors and the fire delay, Woodstone delivered this project under budget and on schedule.
