The awards recognize projects that meet challenges of a difficult job, excellence in project management, innovation in construction, sensitivity to the environment, excellence in client service, and contribution to the community. The awards were presented at the Associated General Contractors Arizona Chapter Annual Awards Dinner.
U.S. 89 Reconstruction CMAR
The FNF Construction team was selected as the Arizona Department of Transportation' CMAR contractor to reconstruct U.S. 89 at MP 526.5 which was damaged in the February 2013 landslide.
FNF provided preconstruction and construction services to excavate material from the existing cut on the east side of US 89, transporting the material to the base of the landslide, and constructing a rockfill buttress.
Sacaton Gila River Bridge
The FNF team was selected based on qualifications for this federally funded demonstration project to "bridge the gap" as an industry leader and develop a showcase example of Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) through the use of the SHRP-2 toolkit (Strategic Highway Research Program). FNF served as the Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) for GRIC DOT for preconstruction and construction services of a new structure on Sacaton Road.
This project was the first example of an ABC/slide-in type or preassembled bridge structure built on Arizona tribal lands with the use of the SHRP-2 toolkit and the CM/GC process.
