Road building and maintenance is expensive.
In steep terrain, torrential rains can make short work of poorly engineered but costly civil engineering works.
Remote installations in Costa Rica typically have a combination of access challenges including road construction itself, rainfall runoff management, and bridges.
Errors in design and pre-project engineering portend non-trivial consequences in downstream repair and maintenance costs and must therefore be accorded the respect merited by the challenge.
OPW offers road and infrastructure engineering and construction services that take width, grade, spans, drainages, and other key design variables closely into account and subcontracts with experienced excavation firms to ensure that the arduous and costly process keeps access development a once-and-done prospect rather than a yearly revisited headache.
