RQAW was selected to design this minor structural overlay. Originally the scope of the project included a substantial amount of widening. When we received the project, RQAW immediately performed a preliminary cost estimate to ensure the project budget would accommodate the scope. Unfortunately, it was found to be approximately $10M underfunded. RQAW worked closely with the client and determined to create alternatives to accomplish the original scope while still bringing the project within budget. Additionally, the client requested RQAW expedite the submittal in order to let the project 10 months early. 2 months after the request was made, RQAW was able to finalize the design and submit the completed package.
