Alaskan Realities: Barriers to Project Completion & Unique Construction Problems Site costs -- little infrastructure in place High cost of Heavy Equipment mobilization and repair. High cost of Quality Control -- Inspections Coordination of very tight construction and delivery season: Long lead time for production and delivery of product - windows, cabinets, etc. Limited availabily of barges due to competing business (Fishing industry) Costs and scheduling "Connex" storage and shipping containers Transportation and upkeep of "core" crew - specialty crews Shortage of qualified manpower (electricians, etc.) (Mitigated with training of local workforce)
