Cadillac Fabrication/Yard King, Inc. Solved Problem for Bandelier National Monument


Cadillac Fabrication/Yard King

The flash flood season at Bandelier National Monument, Los Alamos, New Mexico required removal of the bridge from the parking lot to the picnic area. Peak visitor season was ramping up and maintenance crews needed access to clean up flood debris in the picnic area. Long time PTAC client Cadillac Fabrication/Yard King, Inc. of Cadillac Michigan solved the problem by building a temporary steel bridge 12 feet wide and 65 feet long. To meet a tight time frame for delivery and installation Cadillac Fabrication Sales Executive Mike Gibbons worked with the contracting officer for their GSA Schedule. The bridge was added to their schedule in record time. Ordering through a GSA Schedule allowed Bandelier to get the bridge on site much faster than issuing a solicitation. Mike managed transportation arrangements and DOT permits for getting the oversize load from Michigan to New Mexico. He also found a crane and operator to do the installation at Bandelier. 

Glen Simpson, Bandelier Chief of Facility Management commented, “Everything went like clockwork yesterday. The spanner looks great. We are already using it. Thanks for the great job on the ramps.”
