Congratulations to the construction team that won the 2015 Outstanding Civil Engineering Award announced by the American Society of Civil Engineers Michigan section at ASCE’s annual Michigan Infrastructure Conference last week!
The complex $150 million I-96 reconstruction project completed last summer in Western Wayne County included seven miles of highway and redevelopment of 37 bridges, overpasses and their respective on/off ramps and, with a 180-day start to finish timetable. Considered one of the most compressed schedules for a project of its scope, the project was especially noteworthy for its use of e-construction methodologies which improved communication, driving efficiencies in both time and cost.
This was an unusually challenging project but that’s what made working on it so enjoyable. We were brought in by the general contractor on the job, Dan’s Excavating, and we became part of an incredibly smart and efficient construction team. The fact that we beat the timetable and lowered the forecasted project cost was a huge success. This award is the icing on the cake.
