Caltrans I-215 Barton Road Reconstruction CMGC

Mission Critical was thrilled to have the chance to partner with the Myers-Rados Joint Venture team to successfully capture the I-215 Barton Road CMGC project. This project represents a second key CMGC win for Myers under Caltrans’ pilot program.

This Joint Venture was led by Myers & Sons Construction, LLC (Myers), a California-based general engineering contractor with extensive experience in heavy civil infrastructure construction. The joint venture partner was Steve P. Rados, Inc. (Rados), another family-owned heavy highway firm with a 92-year history of construction excellence in California. These two firms brought a depth of experience that the Mission Critical team had to consolidate and represent in a relatively brief Statement of Qualifications in a way that conveyed the level and relevance of their expertise.

Beginning before the official procurement issue and spanning into the final review of print documents, Mission Critical managed this successful effort with a “content first” approach. Our team held regular focus groups and meetings with Myers and Rados team members to develop details of the design, approach, and delivery for this project.

In addition to creating a fresh perspective for reviewers who may have already been familiar with the Myers-Rados team, Mission Critical incorporated previous experience with the San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG), the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC), the Cities of Grand Terrace and Colton, and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to craft a solid, accurate Statement of Qualifications truly reflecting the aggregate strength of the JV team.

In delivering this winning proposal, Mission Critical met tight review deadlines – working overnight and on weekends – while coordinating the efforts of multiple team reviewers as well as engineering, environmental and modeling experts. Our team leveraged our unique capacity to work across multiple time zones to maximize review time and accelerate the final design and the movement to pre-press. The result was an eye-catching presentation tailored to highlight the solid content that was central to the win.

As mentioned above, this was the second Myers’ win under the Caltrans CMGC pilot program. In late 2014, Mission Critical managed the proposal effort for the Ferguson Slide Reconstruction CMGC, awarded to the Myers-Wadsworth Joint Venture team. Combined, these two projects have a total value of $131M.
