Construction projects in Micronesia and the Western Pacific represent a very unique challenge for successful execution. Not only are suppliers and material availability a significant concern, but so is the basic elements of material transportation and delivery – on top of mobilization to effectively support the long-term remote workforce required.
In many locations where AIC has designed and built projects for our customers, little to no roads, docks or other facilities and infrastructure even exist. We have used many methods to deliver materials to sites, including offshore surveys and the use of landing craft to deliver equipment, life support and man-camps and all materials directly onshore in close proximity to the sites. Further, because of these types of constraints, AIC projects often include requirements not only for structures, but also power generating capabilities, extended utility connection horizontal construction requirements, new dock structures and pilings, and ground up communications infrastructures.
