Meridian provided full-time on-site construction support for the initial sitework phase for the new 100,000 ft2 Samuel Simmonds Memorial Hospital in Barrow, Alaska. Work occurred during freezing conditions in March and April prior to spring breakup. Snow was scraped off the site and then a leveling course was placed, followed by geotextile fabric, two layers of foamboard insulation and top course. The fabric was pinned with a freeze-back slurry, and culverts were also installed at the site access driveway. Duties included verification of quantities placed, creation of daily progress report and daily photo documentation.
