At ECCO, safety is our continuing commitment. The entire ECCO organization is safety-conscious, from principals to field workers. And our rigorous safety program with quarterly general meetings and weekly job-site meetings - has reduced accidents to a minimum, and kept projects proceeding smoothly.
ECCO III routinely examines designs for constructability, and suggests alternate systems, materials, and methods that effectively reduce project timelines and budgets without compromising quality. For example, when the Army Corps of Engineers came to us with a complicated bridge, ECCO III simplified the design with a tie-back system, saving $500,000 and completing the work in half the original schedule.
