Mission Critical is proud to announce our client, Reeves Construction Company (Reeves), was awarded the $100M Downtown Infrastructure CMGC advertised by the City of Augusta Engineering Department (AED). This project represents the first CMGC pursuit and win by Reeves, and is the first CMGC solicitation procured by AED.
The Downtown Infrastructure Projects CMGC is a $100M Transportation Investment Act (TIA) funded program consisting of six individual projects within the Augusta Downtown area. The project includes urban roadway reconstruction with utilities, storm drainage, signalization, concrete, and ADA compliance elements. Collectively, these projects represent a revitalized “point of entry” to the downtown district from Augusta’s Masters Tournament. Significantly, most of the project shares roadway ROW with Norfolk Southern spur facilities serving the City’s industrial sector.
Mission Critical and Reeves came together for this pursuit through the recommendation of Reeves’ parent company Colas USA. Within 24 hours of the initial meeting with Reeves’ project lead, Mission Critical’s team reviewed the agency documentation, provided an NTE estimate, issued contracts, and assembled our pursuit team.
Mission Critical immediately created a work plan to manage the development of the large volume of narrative content within the short, ten-day pursuit timeline. Critical to our success was identifying essential technical experience, knowledge, and approaches unique to Reeves and conducting individual and team interviews as part of our pre-writing discovery efforts.
Mission Critical’s compliance, writing, and design teams worked in parallel to investigate the project’s history, vet public and City documentation, and virtually walk the project, block-by-block with the Reeves team. Our writing group identified and detailed critical constraints, areas of risk, and ideas for innovation. We paired these with Reeves’ strong local and regional portfolio and personnel experience to create a winning CMGC Statement of Proposal.
