This is the second consecutive GEC win for WSB.
Engineering and consulting firm WSB announced today that they have been selected by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) to lead the agency’s Alternative Delivery General Engineering Consultant (GEC) contract for a second consecutive term.
“The opportunity to work alongside MnDOT for the next five years through this contract brings a lot of excitement for our staff,” said WSB’s Alternative Delivery GEC program manager Jon Chiglo. “The GEC contract will allow us to support MnDOT on challenging projects throughout the state and we’re looking forward to assisting the agency as their go-to engineering partner.”
MnDOT’s GEC Master Contract Program supports their preconstruction design bid build project activities and services. Specifically, the Alternative Delivery GEC contract supports the alternative contracting framework and supplements MnDOT staff in a variety of roles.
“The GEC is an important contract that will allow WSB to continue to work closely with MnDOT on solving some of our state’s most vital infrastructure challenges,” said WSB’s president and chief executive officer Bret Weiss. “WSB has taken many steps to diversify our service offerings and become a trusted transportation engineering firm in Minnesota. I’m proud of our partnership with MnDOT and look forward to supporting the agency and the state through this GEC.”
WSB was previously awarded the Alternative Delivery GEC contract in 2016 and has supported MnDOT on nearly $1 billion worth of transportation infrastructure projects through the contract. These projects, some of the largest and most significant in the state, include the Twin Ports Interchange in Duluth, Willmar Wye, Interstate 94 between Maple Grove and Clearwater, Interstate 35W north of Highway 36, TH 14 between Owatonna and Dodge Center and Highway 52 between Cannon Falls and Zumbrota.
