Meeting modern needs

Three megaprojects are finalists in the running for the 2011 PMI Project of the Year. This article previews these three projects: Oak Grove Steam Electric Station (Franklin, TX, USA), EMAL Smelter Complex (Al Taweelah, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates), and Prairie Waters Project (Aurora, CO, USA). In doing so, it explains each project's unique challenges and features. Each initiative survived a historically brutal global economy and stringent deadlines to meet the triple constraints. One project took advantage of cloud technology to manage a large, dispersed team, another was forced to accommodate equipment that sat in storage for three decades, and the third project spanned six local government jurisdictions.
