The trifecta of difficulty

In non-technical terms, this was a whole lot of glass on a quick turnaround for a job that was being designed while it was being built. That’s pretty much the trifecta of difficulty. For fabrication and installation.

So when we fabricated and installed this “whole lot of glass” we had to get it right the first time. And we had to do it fast, working through the details of the design and specs at the same time. (See, typically, the design comes, you know, first.) So the glass was being fabricated and installed, sort of more or less at the same time.

To say this was a “schedule challenge” would be understating it.

A lot.
