Remarkables Ski Field Base Building

This project was for the construction of a new base building located close to the existing Remarkables ski-field.  As well as providing ski-field support activities, the build also included a restaurant and café on the upper level.

Action Engineering was a sub-contractor engaged by the project manager to complete the structural steel for this building.  However, late award of the sub contract along with a number of unresolved issues with the design, along with late onsite construction, placed real pressure on Action Engineering and their ability to deliver steel to meet an accelerated programme.

Octa was engaged by Action Engineering to assist them with the planning and implementation of their subcontract.  This included consideration of the design programme, fabrication and build sequence, of a rapidly evolving project.  This was a complex task with considerable issues with design coordination to resolve along with frequent and ongoing changes to the actual build sequence.

Octa undertook this detailed planning and provided an overview of implementation that enabled Action to complete their work in readiness for the 2016 ski season.

This project presented many challenges of dealing with a project under stress from late construction and a harsh alpine environment.
