Coordinated Saving

Wasn’t that street just under construction? Infrastructure is often built up like a layer cake – water pipes go in the ground, electrical and gas lines, and roads are at ground level, and more electrical lines hang in the air. When an agency goes to fix one often it may make sense to do other work too – from coordinating the permitting, to construction, and even clean up. Every company can be susceptible to the silo effect, but coordinated construction between disparate agencies in a city or municipality can result in increased productivity and savings, and decreased angst from citizens.
