In the last 10 years, Gordon N. Ball, Inc. has successfully completed 7 individual projects with an aggregate value of over $27 million at Mission Bay. The projects were constructed under a quasi-private/public contracting model, and required adherence to very strict local hiring and local subcontractor participation requirements. The projects were constructed under very challenging working conditions, with very unstable soils and foundations, underground debris fields, and high groundwater. When the first contract began, there was minimal construction activity in the area and very little industry knowledge and experience with the working conditions and rules. By the time the latest projects were completed, the working conditions were controlled by the requirement to synchronize with the heavy building activity ongoing in the area, and the increased traffic caused by the improvements completed to date. The success of Gordon N. Ball, Inc. at Mission Bay is an example of the ability of management to successfully integrate and apply its experience and knowledge to all aspects and intricacies of heavy civil construction.
