What does the construction manager do on a tunnel job?
You probably have a pretty good idea what the designer does on a tunnel project, and you know that the contractor excavates the tunnel and completes the work. But what about the construction manager? What is their role? In this session you’ll hear the story of one construction manager’s involvement with three exciting tunnel projects over the past 10 years, including the Brightwater Conveyance project near Seattle, the DC Clean Rivers Project in the District of Columbia and currently the SR99 Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement in Seattle. Along the way you’ll also gain a better understanding of “who does what” on these projects, hear why the speaker is an outspoken supporter of what Elon Musk is doing and identify additional areas where you may be able to help move the industry forward.
