In fact, Ahern’s Pipe Fabrication team was able to finish one month ahead of schedule. Fabricating 3” to 8” carbon steel piping, totaling 55 spools at 24,880 pounds altogether, 20 fab shop welders worked diligently to meet the anticipated deadline. Additional internal processes that aided in meeting the project deadline was hosting preplan meetings with drafting, material control, quality control, and the shop to coordinate all activities.
