Atkinson Earns AGC-WSDOT's Excellence in Contract Administration Award
TACOMA, Wash. – Atkinson Construction was among those honored for administrative and environmental excellence by Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Washington and Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT). Six projects were selected as winners of the Partnership for Excellence in Contract Administration, including Atkinson's I-405/SR 518 Concrete Pavement Rehabilitation project. The teams were honored for delivering transportation projects in a professional and responsive manner while also considering the needs of those affected by the project.
A panel of judges based their award selections on customer-focused administration, innovative problem solving, overcoming extraordinary challenges, effective contract administration, timely completion of the project, and overall project safety. Awards were presented at the AGC-WSDOT annual meeting January 8.
To minimize impacts to the traveling public, a majority of the work on I-405 was performed during two 54-hour weekend closures, while for SR 518, crews used extended weekend lane closures to complete the work.
