Both the RARP and GRTA projects were monitored by the NYS Department of Public Service, the RARP is a New York State Article VII project requiring additional oversight and specific experience with Article VII projects. The GRTA is not an Article VII project however it was monitored by the NYS DPS as it was related to on going rate making discussions between a regional generator and Rochester Gas & Electric. The GRTA was on an accelerated schedule and deemed “the most important project within Iberdrola” globally.
Kenny Construction brought several key resources to the customer which possessed the requisite experience and credentials to staff NYS Article VII projects. Additionally KCC was able to seamlessly transition between the large RARP and GRTA programs with the onsite staff to ensure both projects could progress as required by AVANGRID. KCC was able to scale resources as required by AVANGRID to provide just in time staffing for the various phases of the project. At one of the stations there were up to 90 contractors working at once to complete the project in the needed timeline. KCC staffed as many as 25 staff members at up to eight work sites. Lastly due to internal changes with AVANGRID personnel, KCC was able to fill roles not originally in their scope to ensure project continuity as several project managers transitioned to other responsibilities or left the company.
