CONNECTINg PROJECT TEAmS
north tarrant expressway – segment west
Dallas/Fort worth, Texas, united States
The north Tarrant express (n Te) is a $2.5 billion, 13.5-mile project dedicated to
improving mobility along the Airport Freeway corridor. representing $1.6 billion
of the project, the Segment West will reconstruct and upgrade existing lanes,
improve and expand frontage lanes, and add managed toll lanes for commuters.
n Te mobility partners contracted Aecom to complete the due diligence study
that contributed to the consortium’s winning bid.
With just five months to deliver the study, Aecom implemented project Wise
to quickly and efficiently connect a 75-member team located in four offices.
project Wise leveraged cloud computing to facilitate collaboration without the
need for extensive IT infrastructure. By hosting the service in the cloud, Aecom
saved four months in start-up time and 80 percent of on-site deployment costs.
sH 130 segments 5 and 6
Austin-San Antonio, Texas, united States
State Highway 130 parallels I- 35 to relieve traffic in the Austin-San Antonio
corridor. central Texas Highway constructors contracted Aecom to provide
final plans, specifications, and estimates for the $1.35 billion Segments 5 and
6. This 27-mile stretch is a four-lane divided tollway with two multidirectional
interchanges, 14 grade separations, and 31 miles of frontage road. major design
elements were due 18 months from notice to proceed with design-build.
From an on-site office, Aecom coordinated design among 120 employees
spread across 20 offices throughout north America. project Wise connected
96 team members to the design process, enabling Aecom to integrate one
approach to design and document versioning. project Wise saved the project
more than $5.6 million in travel reduction and productivity gains, returning 80
times the original investment.
