DXI is proud to partner with Hensel Phelps on this mission-critical project for the federal government. The classified project is an extensive new dry utility duct bank project on a government campus outside of Washington, D.C. The highly complex project consists of approximately 30,000 lineal feet of underground electrical duct bank construction.
In addition to the typical complexity of working on a high-security site with a very tight schedule, the project presented some unique challenges. Initially scheduled for all night work, DXI was able to work with the project team to accomplish the objectives by working in primarily daylight hours.
The campus is a mission-critical installation with activities that cannot be interrupted, and continuous access must be provided to vehicles and personnel. Therefore, DXI was challenged with working in very limited and confined areas at a time to demolish existing infrastructure, excavate and install the duct banks. We dedicated the personnel, equipment and expertise to meet those challenges and our client’s expectations.
To date, we have installed approximately 205,000 lineal feet of conduit, more than 18,000 cubic yards of concrete and 90 electrical manholes all while carefully navigating around 513 existing utility crossings and or test pits.
DXI Construction’s industry-leading safety record and long history working on mission-critical military and government installations has made us the trusted partner of choice for these federal projects.
