Each crew we deploy is led by one of our seasoned supervisors, each with an impressive track record of successfully completed rail projects. We make the most of their extensive experience on similar work allowing MERCO to capitalize on opportunities for value engineering and schedule accelerations as they occur.
MERCO’s crews are all railroad trained, security screened and certified in railway safety regulations. Our field personnel have years of experience working on and around active railroads. Your project benefits from their field-proven expertise and MERCO’s commitment to getting the job done right, delivering it on-time or ahead of schedule, while reinforcing safety and safe work practices at every step of the project- all good reasons railroads nationwide know the value of bringing their projects to MERCO.
The success of every MERCO project is a function of the commitment of time and energy we spend on Preconstruction activities. Constructability reviews, phasing and scheduling, and value engineering (including any required design/build functions) are all vital components of a well formulated preconstruction strategy, a strategy that has saved MERCO clients millions of dollars.
MERCO’s Constructability Reviews provides owners with the opportunity to benefit from our extensive field experience, at a time when it can have the greatest impact on the overall success of the project. By anticipating and taking steps to mitigate field problems before the start of construction, we more effectively maintain or reduce the project schedule while minimizing potential change orders.
At MERCO we perform Value Engineering studies to help our clients evaluate their options for accelerating the schedule, reducing costs, and/or improving quality. Everything from construction phasing, to the processes and materials are reviewed to ensure that we deliver the best possible value for the owner. Dependent upon the project and considering the circumstances, Merco will perform both the Design and Build tasks related to the work (Design Build). These Design Build projects range from small private rock slope projects with no prior engineering to large public heavy civil projects.
