FRANK SPINOZZA, P.E., project manager, RCC
rail yard, " said Spinozza. " As it
came to be with the virus, working
within an enclosed space presents
a different set of challenges than
working outside. So, with a majority
of our work being outside, we
had the ability to implement social
distancing without adjusting
the schedule or make any major
changes to our work plan. "
al safety measures by increasing
the number of bathroom facilities
and hand washing stations,
providing additional cleaning
supplies in shared spaces, such
as equipment cabs and offices,
daily meetings transitioned to
a virtual platform to limit the
number of on-site office personnel
and RCC enforced companywide
protocols that it says met or
exceeded guidelines provided by
the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention.
RCC did not experience a
work shut down or any workforce
issues related to the pandemic.
While Spinozza acknowledged
there were supply chain issues,
he explains that the RCC Team
" adjusted and worked through
these issues without impacting
the project schedule. "
He added, " Despite the many
hurdles presented by the pandemic,
RCC was very fortunate
to continue construction safely
on the New Mid-Suffolk Electric
Yard regardless of unforeseen
shutdowns and restrictions. "
Late last year, RCC's work
on the LIRR New Mid-Suffolk
Electric Yard was selected by the
National Railroad Construction
& Maintenance Association as
its 2020 Large Project of the Year.
The award goes to a rail construction
project that not only demonstrates
overcoming challenges of
that project, but demonstrates a
dedication to safety. RCC completed
the project with zero recordable/lost-time
incidents.
A letter from LIRR Senior Project
Manager Steven J. Schneider
included in the award submission
said RCC's work deserved recognition
and surpassed expectations.
" The last year has presented a

number of obstacles no one could
have predicted. The RCC team
maintained a constant presence
on the project site to uphold the
schedule and keep construction
moving forward ... Pre- and
post-COVID-19, the number of
safety precautions that were implemented
and enforced is to be
commended. The quality of management
surpassed our expectations, "
wrote Schneider.
As Spinozza reflects on the
completed project, he notes there
isn't an element that could be
identified as " most challenging. "

a new set of challenges that created
an interesting yet demanding environment.
As a design/build project
progresses through each phase,
the focus shifts from planning to
construction and every detail is put
to the test. When planning is done
properly, materials and equipment
are readily available, and the correct
manpower is attributed to the
task at hand; the work is performed
correctly and safely, ultimately
resulting in a quality project the
company is proud to represent. "
