American Structurepoint’s expertise and skill in delivering for our customers is reflected well in two big wins announced at April’s end in the Transportation and Federal sectors. Here’s a recap.
American Structurepoint and our Texas design center scored a huge strategic win—a $5 million fee project to prepare plans, specifications, and estimates (PS&E) and related documents for on- and off-system bridge replacements throughout Texas. The company had been targeting this opportunity for over six months, and early coordination with the procurement team helped us to have a good strategy in place upon the RFP’s posting. American Structurepoint is the prime provider on the project, with six subconsultants. The contract can include assignments in any of TxDOT’s 25 districts. This is a terrific opportunity for us to showcase our skills around the state, and our designers will learn a lot about hydraulics and challenges in many regions of Texas.
FUN FACT: This proposal almost didn’t make it to the evaluation stage! The first proposal that we shipped was mis-sorted by UPS and spent an extra night at the Indianapolis airport! Luckily, we had scheduled an extra day for mishaps, so we sent a second copy of the proposal to TxDOT, which was successfully delivered a few hours before the deadline. A big congratulations and thank you to all who contributed to this win.
Federal Group Wins Work for New Parking Structure
We are excited about being selected as a subconsultant on the Apogee Consulting team to provide structural engineering and civil engineering services to design a new 460-space expandable multi-use parking structure at the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The overall footprint of the parking garage is expected to be approximately 20,000 sft, with construction estimated at $10 to $20 million. This project pursuit was made successful through of our long-standing teaming history with Apogee Consulting Group and our impressive résumé of parking structures we have designed over the years. Fee negotiations are proceeding with the Department of Veterans Affairs and we are hopeful to be under contract very soon!
