Life Support Area (LSA) Anaconda – Balad, Iraq
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) – Philadelphia District
Client Needs and Requirements:
A previous contractor had begun the construction and commissioning of four waste incinerators at LSA Anaconda; however, the job was left incomplete. ISI was contracted to complete the project, including several anciliary buildings in support of the new waste management program.
Challenges and ISI’s Response:
When we were awarded the contract, the site and materials had already been sitting in various stages of completion for months. Many of the materials had been exposed to the elements during this time. Our first task was to take a complete inventory of what we had to work with and determine what would be salvageable. We created brand new designs, using as many of the original materials as possible.
Of the equipment that was salvageable, much of it was found in pieces around the job site. We had to sort through everything and correctly assemble the parts in order to get the incinerators up and running.
In spite of the original state of the site, the job was completed on schedule and within budget, and received an overall Performance Evaluation of “Outstanding.” We received especially positive customer feedback in regards to Quality Control, Project Management, and Safety Standards.
