IAH East Aircraft Parking Hardstand Design-Build

A joint venture consisting of Texas Sterling Construction, Inc. of Houston and J. Banicki Construction of Tempe, AZ was recently recommended for award of the $31M East Aircraft Parking Hardstand at George Bush Intercontinental (IAH) in TX.

Leveraging a solid history of project wins with Banicki, the Mission Critical team quickly built partnering relationships with JV lead Texas Sterling and the DB Design firm of Kimley Horne and Associates to manage the two-step DB procurement response effort.

“Working through this challenging procurement with Mission Critical maximized our efforts while avoiding “locking up” a complete team from our firm and TSC,” said Alternative Procurement Manager Don Davis, LEED AP. “Mission Critical once again proved that they have the resources and the capacity to tackle not just the easy stuff like resumes, but the technical narrative as well”.

As with all our efforts, the Mission Critical team focused on developing clean, solid content for Step 1, Statement of Qualifications. Ensuring a shortlist position, these efforts then transitioned into our collaboration with Kimley Horne and the JV team during the Step 2, Technical Proposal phase to develop a concise and comprehensive approach for delivering this key enabling project for the Airport’s Terminal Redevelopment Plan.

Working late nights and weekends, the Mission Critical team executed the effort’s CPM schedule on time, delivering not only the confidence of a best-effort proposal, but another important aviation win for our clients.
