Nova Solution Wins Unique Safety Award Nova Group, Inc. devised a

unique safety solution on a fuel pier replacement project at Pt. Loma, San Diego for the U.S. Navy. To mitigate risks faced by underwater

divers, Nova came up with a plan to employ a system of remotely operated cameras to safely inspect underwater piles in lieu of divers. The underwater camera inspection methods save an estimated 264 underwater exposure man-hours, and virtually eliminated the use of dive teams for pile coating inspection on the project. In addition to providing a safer

solution, the system is estimated to have saved more than $400,000 in project costs over a six-month time period.

Myers/ACC Wins Project Team Award Myers & Sons Construction, LP and American Civil Constructors West overcame

a host of challenges to complete a large-scale, highly complex bridge deck recon- struction and electrical upgrade project for Caltrans last year without a single recordable incident. As a result of their efforts, AGC of California awarded the project the Safety Effort of a Project Team winner for 2016. The project entailed work on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge, the 25th

longest in

the world. The Myers/ACC team was challenged with delivering 3.1 million square feet of bridge deck reconstruction and 7.15 miles of critical 12kV substation and powerline upgrades over the sensitive waters of San Francisco Bay. Although the project was originally broken into two distinct parts, the team took

on the challenge to combine it into one contract – all while ensuring a coordinated approach to safety. This coordination was critical to the success of the 7-mile, 135-foot-wide bridge project featuring diverse work scopes and schedule needs and competing space and access issues. The Myers/ACC team also had to address key owner concerns over quality,

schedule and cost. The integration of key subcontractor Roadway Electric early in preconstruction resulted in multiple opportunities for safety systems collaboration between team members and ensured that field managers responsible for executing the work were also involved in planning the work. The Myers/ACC team developed a “square-by-square” site materials management

and safety plan that streamlined “heavy pick” and oversized materials handling and movement as well as logistics and storage within the confined areas of the bridge deck. The effort included hold points for daily compliance and inspection review, and it was a key contributor to the “zero incident” record earned by the project team. The Myers/ACC team utilized innovative techniques and approaches and incorpo-

rated rapid decision-making and field level collaboration to meet the unique safety challenges on the job.
