$215M CDOT Design-Build Win!

We are excited to announce another Colorado alternative delivery win!  The R.L. Wadsworth/SEMA Construction (RLW-SEMA) Joint Venture was recently awarded the $215M I-25 Reconstruction CMGC – Segments 5 & 6. During this project, RLW-SEMA will be collaborating with CDOT, the City of Loveland and Fort Collins to mitigate local economic impacts, ensure traffic volumes stay consistent, meet the access needs of corridor stakeholders – all while meeting CDOT’s tough expectations for the Construction Agreed Price (CAP).  

As the largest win yet for SEMA Construction, R.L. Wadsworth’s biggest project in Colorado, and Mission Critical’s fourth alternative delivery win in Colorado in the past 3 years, each team put forth their strongest members early in the pursuit of this project.  

The pursuit posed several challenges with tight page constraints, detailed requirements, and a need to present complex staging graphics in an easily understood (and scorable) format. The Mission Critical team advanced work rapidly through charrettes and content development meetings to ensure that the document exceeded compliance in each section while also meeting the document guidelines.  

Committing our team to join RLW-SEMA in bi-weekly meetings in Denver was key to the pursuit’s success. Throughout the project, we partnered with RLW-SEMA team members to discuss and create approach and strategy narratives exceeding CDOT’s expectations. 

For resumes, we interviewed every individual on the team to get a firm understanding of their relevancy to the project and developed custom narratives throughout the document that spoke to each individual’s background. In developing our understanding and approach, our goal was to link the experience of the RLW-SEMA team with their ability to deliver truly innovative solutions to CDOT.  The Mission Critical team successfully wove this connection into each section of the proposal—creating a unified narrative that went above and beyond CDOT’s expectation. Our graphics team worked diligently throughout the project to produce creative and innovative graphics that not only demonstrated the alternative construction plans and innovations, but also included environmental elements and exact imagery of the corridor itself.  

We look forward to the opportunity to work with RLW and SEMA in the future and enjoyed the opportunity to pursue such a landmark project for Colorado’s roadway infrastructure.
