Mission Impossible

8/31/04 MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE
11/1/04 MISSION: ACCOMPLISHED

Pappas FieldThis was a job that could not have, should not have been possible. However the dedicated team at Leighton A. White, Inc. just simply made it work.

On August 26, the VP and director of athletics at Franklin Pierce College in Rindge, NH contacted Dale White; VP at Leighton A. White, Inc. He was requesting help in finishing an NCAA ball field, begun by another contractor. Dale, at first said it could not be done. Then upon seeing the desperate situation the college was in, he decided to evaluate the status of the project.

Upon first inspection the field looked like a war zone. It would be impossible to undo then redo the work in the fast narrowing timetable while maintaining their impeccable reputation for safety and superior work. However by August 30, after meetings with his project manager and company employees, they decided to take on the formidable project. The following day the college job site was in full gear.

Once started, the project became an even greater challenge. Two different sets of plans had been in use, material that was supposedly on-site was not, incorrect elevations, incorrect drainage, improperly backfilled pipe – the list of obstacles was endless. In addition to the seemingly insurmountable challenges, the artificial turf being used was imported from Sweden bringing its own set of difficulties. These included time zone changes, language barriers and no initial personal contact with the company. Added to the mix was a college campus filling with students for the fall semester, bringing foot traffic, parking difficulties, and fall sports.

On November 11, 2004 we looked at the completed project; clubhouse, bleacher pads, backstops, water, sewer, lights, press box, communication office and a beautiful field and knew that, against all odds, we had completed the impossible mission.

Valued Customers Say

(Re: a tower site with two approval delays) A typical scenario at that point would have been to start winter construction, with the expectation of bringing the site on-line sometime towards the end of Jan. I met with your firm though, and was assured that through whatever contortions necessary, you would be able to work within my unrealistic expectations. It is a credit to everyone in your organization that official site turn-up happened Dec.…John Stevens, P.E.NYNEX Mobile Communications
