In early April 2020, DEN approached IHC Scott with the idea of accelerating the remaining 3 phases of the project by allowing work to be completed in multiple phases at once due to low flight counts from the COVID pandemic. Through multiple partnering and schedule meetings with DEN, it was agreed IHC Scott would start construction on Phase 2 on June 1st, 2020, Phase 3 on July 7th, 2020, and Phase 4 on August 13th, 2020. With the ability to work on the remaining 3 phases concurrently, IHC was able to offer DEN a 120-day decrease in the overall duration of the project. This agreement was incredibly impactful in helping save the project from termination due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
