Critical environment construction
Critical environment construction (CEC) is commercial construction projects that require highly technical techniques or work practices in order to complete.
Critical environment construction includes projects where highly sensitive or technical challenges exists. In some instances a project may require sophisticated HVAC, electrical or plumbing solutions while other projects may require extreme structural or engineering solutions.
Projects where air quality, harmonics, static electricity, etc. are a concern are typical of CEC projects. Often special practices are developed by contractors to address the extreme needs of projects where these conditions exist. Many times these projects involve occupied spaces at such places as hospitals, research facilities, data centers, telephony switch rooms or even high level manufacturing operations.
Contractors who work in critical environment construction tend to have a highly skilled team with high levels of training to address the sensitive and complicated challenges that CEC projects regularly present.
