IPI Honors Five Flatiron Projects for Partnering Success
Broomfield, Colorado (May 20, 2015) – Five Flatiron projects earned honors in the 2015 International Partnering Institute Partnered Project of the Year Awards program.
IPI Partnered Projects of the Year honor project teams who have exhibited the highest levels of collaboration on projects completed in 2014. Winning teams demonstrated a commitment partnering, achieved excellent results and delivered outstanding projects.
“Flatiron has earned more than 50 partnering awards for our collaborative efforts to bring projects to successful completion. These awards are a testament to the successful partnerships we form with partners, designers, and owners on Flatiron projects across North America,” said John DiCiurcio, Chief Executive Officer of Flatiron.
The Oakland International Airport Connector project in Oakland, Calif., earned a Sapphire Level Partnered Project of the Year award in the Transportation Mega Projects – $250 Million Plus category. The design-build project, owned by San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District, is a 3.2 mile fixed, elevated guideway for an automated people mover between the Coliseum BART Station and the Oakland Airport.
Flatiron’s Highway 65 Lincoln Bypass project in Lincoln, Calif., earned a Ruby Level Partnered Project of the Year award in the $25 Million – $250 Million category. The California Department of Transportation projects included construction of 12 miles of new four-lane freeway, 19 bridges and 3,720 meters of sound wall.
The Route 110 Auxiliary Lane project in Los Angeles won a Ruby Level Partnered Project of the Year award in the Projects Under $25 Million category. The Caltrans project added an additional lane in each direction on the 110 Freeway, as well as widening and replacing bridge structures.
Two additional Flatiron jobs were named Honorable Mention Projects by IPI: Flatiron’s I-85 Yadkin River Crossing project in Salisbury, North Carolina and the San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge Oakland Touchdown 2 project in Oakland, California.
The Yadkin River Bridge Crossing project, for owner North Carolina Department of Transportation, is a design-build project that includes new dual bridges on Interstate 85 over the Yadkin River. The project also included widening of approximately three miles of the four-lane interstate to eight lanes, including the north and south approaches to the bridges.
The SFOBB Touchdown project for Caltrans was the final project on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge project, opening the new crossing to traffic. The project included construction of the last 450 feet of bridge that connected the new eastern span of the SFOBB to Oakland. Flatiron was also responsible for a mile of approach roadway and the final traffic switch operation.
