CMAR Win: San Francisco Public Works Third Street Bridge Rehabilitation

Our client, California Engineering Contractors, Inc.(CEC), won the Third Street Bridge Rehabilitation contract in San Francisco, California!

The Third Street Bridge, also known as the “Lefty O’Doul Bridge,” is scheduled for rehabilitation to sustain the bridge’s integrity and address corrosion issues. The project scope will involve repairs or replacement of damaged steel members, welds, concrete counterweights, support piles, bridge fenders, spot removal of rust and associated priming and recoating, removal and replacement of the steel bridge deck, and other associated work. This project is a unique one that will involve the use of underwater divers, barges, and rafts due to the nature and location of the bridge. Additionally, there will be a temporary installation of protective barriers and containment curtains to protect the waterway and the public from debris.

This San Francisco Public Works project was procured as a Construction Manager At-Risk (CMAR) through a Request for Qualifications with a short timeframe. The single-phase pursuit process emphasized the SOQ to communicate California Engineering Contractors’ (CEC) project team, experience, as well as preconstruction and construction approaches to the San Francisco Public Works selection committee.

The Mission Critical team worked with CEC through team charrettes and staged review cycles to ensure that we accurately represented the appropriate approach, technical elements, and value engineering aspects in the submitted document. With the tight timeline for submittal, the team had to organize and mobilize quickly. Mission Critical had to coordinate the document design, page layouts, and content approaches to meet the deadline and exceed expectations. Ultimately, Mission Critical and CEC created a successful document to reflect their winning team for this Third Street Bridge Rehabilitation Project.
