Mission Critical is proud to announce Texas Sterling-Banicki’s Design-Build win of the Houston Airport System’s Spaceport Development!
The Joint Venture of Texas Sterling Construction and Banicki Construction leverages the strength of their shared parent company, Sterling Construction Company. Texas Sterling-Banicki will team with aerospace infrastructure designer Kimley-Horn on this Design-Build to deliver Phase 1 of the Spaceport Development project on a 153-acre site. The scope includes the construction of 53,000 square feet of laboratory and office space in addition to roadways and parking, water, wastewater, electrical power and distribution, and communications facilities.
Mission Critical has worked with Texas Sterling-Banicki on other procurements, winning the HAS Hardstand project. Our team has also worked with Phoenix-based Banicki on other project pursuits, and we were well-suited to work with this Joint Venture on the HAS procurement.
As members of the DBIA, we at Mission Critical understand how to communicate between Construction and Engineering groups. Given this skill and our previous knowledge and experience with these teams, we could synthesize ideas from all parties into a robust set of proposal documents. In this three-stage procurement, we developed a Statement of Qualifications, a Statement of Proposal, and an interview strategy and presentation. Our approach illustrated Texas Sterling-Banicki’s experience designing and constructing this technical airfield and infrastructure work and their commitment to working with HAS to meet their vision and budget.
This project’s size and scope, including vertical and horizontal construction in a technically tricky and restricted airfield area, added more challenges. Mission Critical advanced work through charrettes and content development meetings to ensure that the document reflected the team’s approach and exceeded compliance and document guidelines. Through a concerted effort and coordination, Texas Sterling-Banicki advanced through all three procurement stages to win this prestigious and exciting project.
