Department of Energy- Rapid Reactivation Project

The Rapid Reactivation project was a $15.6 million project initiated to meet the increased production requirements of limited life components to support the nuclear weapons stockpile at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) in New Mexico. Meeting the increase in capacity was accomplished by rearranging and upgrading space within existing SNL buildings, constructing approximately 18,000 sf of new space, and purchasing and installing new production equipment. Delays led to a reduction in project schedule while maintaining a final completion date. Top management oversight from program, procurement and project management during key phases of the project allowed for a three week reduction of the schedule despite a significant program change in the final three months of construction.
