Alliance Case Study: Fisher House

One example of a project where multiple alliance partners were successfully brought together by RBVetCo is the site preparation of the Fisher House VA residence facility at the University of Pittsburgh.

The scope of work included the design and construction of a substantial MSE retaining wall on a challenging slope condition (including calculation of over-excavation and mine void stabilization solutions), site demolition, relocation of sanitary and storm sewers (including separation of the sanitary and storm sewers), installation of electrical ducts, and concrete paving repair.

Construction of the retaining wall took place within challenging conditions on a slope area overlooking the University of Pittsburgh athletic fields. The geotechnical design of the project required coordination of multiple disciplines, including geotechnical engineering, mine stabilization/grouting expertise, structural engineering and plumbing engineering expertise.

RBVetCo coordinated all disciplines throughout the design process and worked with the VA to achieve final approval, thereby demonstrating our ability to manage a challenging design/build project, including management of multiple subcontractors and resolution of subcontractor conflicts. Even though the quality of RBVetCo’s design initially won the contract, our careful and effective managing of the team ultimately defined the project’s success.
