Management of the construction of a 40 million project, a confined disposal facility for dredge spoil, within a small multipurpose recreation facility presents unique challenges to intergovernmental cooperation and to construction management by the contractor and the contracting agency. The construction environment, a combination of uplands, beach, marsh, and lake bottom lands, required special sensitivity in specification drafting and coordination among several governmental agencies during construction. Construction presented major excavation and material handling challenges. Planning, scheduling, contractor quality control, and the contracting agency's quality assurance and contract administration are keys to successful construction.
