The installation of a large pharmaceutical-grade cooler can be quite the undertaking, with many moving parts and phases required to complete the project. With the help of 15 employees, Freije-RSC was able to take massive strides on several phases of a large pharmaceutical project by completing many multi-step and multi-trade installments ahead of schedule.
Under strict sanitation and temperature control requirements, each step of the process must be validated to make sure work has been completed up to standard. By ensuring that each phase is completed correctly and in a timely manner, Freije-RSC has been able to work seamlessly with other trade professionals in order to complete each part of the project.
“Finishing these phases early is very difficult when you are dependent on trades outside your company. Our lead men on each trade made it a point to set up a working rapport with other trades, and then convey the schedule very clearly,” said Jeff Michalski, industrial contract manager.
With the help of the general contractor, those working on the project were able to complete their work in the most efficient way possible, and wrap the job ahead of schedule.
During the month of April Freije-RSC was proud to donate time and labor to assist the Indianapolis Habitat for Humanity organization with their first ever Board Build. What is a Board Build, you ask? Rather than the Habitat for Humanity board members going into the community to raise money through outings and lunches, they strap on their tool belts and invite local businesses to assist them in building a home for a local family in need.
“It was an amazing experience to see the project from start to finish. I couldn’t believe that it started as a shell and a month later was livable. At the kick off meeting we found out that these homes aren’t given away, they’re earned. Knowing that I helped set the piping and build the ductwork was very rewarding. I can’t wait to do it again and I hope to set up a company build day shortly. ” – Ashley Griffith, Freije-RSC Construction Coordinator
Collectively, the Board Build raised over $66,500 to help fund this family’s very first house. Freije-RSC is proud to have worked on such a rewarding build and welcomes the Harris family to their home.
