Mission Impossible: Columbia Gas Construction Recovery

In today’s society, much of the infrastructure that makes our communities function is taken for granted. This past September that all changed when excessive pressure in natural gas lines caused a series of explosions and fires that severely impacted Lawrence, Andover, and North Andover MA. The recovery effort became a State of Emergency for Massachusetts, and Joe Albanese, CEO of Commodore Builders was appointed by Governor Baker to oversee the recovery and restoration effort. Over 11 weeks, Joe was in command of the $450 million construction project that included 5,150 personnel, the replacement of 45 miles of gas pipeline, recertification of 13 miles of pipeline, and power restoration to 10,500 residences, community and municipal buildings, schools and businesses. Drawing on his experience as a Navy Seabee, virtually overnight, Joe assembled a top-notch leadership team and set up a Command Operations Center to provide command, control and communications for the months-long project.
