Granite (NYSE: GVA) announced that the joint venture team comprised of Granite and Kraemer North America has been awarded a Construction Manager / General Contractor (CM / GC) contract by United Bridge Partners for the Bay City Bridges Project in Bay City, Michigan. CM / GC procurement involves the contractor during the design and planning phases and offers a lower risk profile for both the contractor and the owner while increasing the overall value to project stakeholders. This process is designed to promote collaboration and to solicit value-adding feedback from the contractor. As a consolidating partner, the total contract award of $ 125 million is anticipated to be included in Granite’s fourth quarter 2020 committed and awarded projects (CAP)1.
“This project supports our geographic expansion and strategic focus on alternate delivery models, said Granite Regional Vice President Ryan Clark.” It also provides growth opportunities for our team members, expands our capabilities in moveable bridge construction and rehabilitation, and reinforces our strong partnership with United Bridge Partners and their mission to repair our national infrastructure by providing privately-funded bridge solutions to public agencies.
The scope of work includes the rehabilitation of the existing Liberty Bridge and a complete reconstruction and alignment of the Independence Bridge. Both bridges will remain in service through the duration of the project.
Design and preconstruction services are underway, and construction is expected to be complete by the end of 2023.
(1) CAP is comprised of unearned revenue and other awards, as well as construction management / general contractor and alternative procurement projects.
