This project involved replacement, refurbishment and manufacturing of certain components related to the Annapolis sluice gates and guides. These roller gates are approximately 30 ft. wide x 24 ft. high, weighing approximately 30 tons. This contract involved a very tight schedule with a completion date that was not flexible. CME approached this project by first developing a safe work plan with a number of inter-related activities involving NSPI personnel and a diving contractor.
CME had an excellent work crew both in the field and at their manufacturing and repair facility in Burnside. This firm provided quality work to meet the project schedule. Their project supervision was very professional and provided the required results. In addition, they have a well-equipped manufacturing and repair facility which enabled them to produce the required components on time and on budget.
