Sarpy County is one of the fastest-growing counties in the state of Nebraska. To accommodate this boom in growth, the County created the CONNECT Sarpy infrastructure development program. The County anticipates approximately 75 projects occurring over the next six years as part of the CONNECT Sarpy effort. These projects will improve residents’ access and mobility by replacing degraded bridges, improving roadways, and increasing the safety of the existing transportation network ahead of increased traffic volumes.
Ten different developments are currently active or in the planning stages for the West Sarpy County area, and the County anticipates the overall pace and scope of projects will expand in response to increased development in the region. The 180th and Giles Roadway Infrastructure project aims to improve roadway and utility infrastructure ahead of the developments planned for the nine-square-mile area between 168th and 204th streets, Harrison Street to Hwy 370.
Sarpy County is using Alternative Delivery for many of the projects within the CONNECT Sarpy program. With Mission Critical’s nationwide expertise in Construction Manager / General Contractor (CMGC or CM/GC) procurements, Kiewit selected Mission Critical as Pursuit Managers for the Phase 1 Statement of Qualifications effort.
Mission Critical’s Impact
Mission Critical created opportunities to expand on Kiewit’s successful proposal brand and avoid the use of boilerplate language. In doing so, we provided avenues to explore firm experience in greater detail and relevance to the County’s goals and stakeholder concerns for the project. As a result, our team created unique narratives that presented experience, capacity, and knowledge. In parallel, we incorporated key risks, approaches, and benefits the County could expect to see in the team’s upcoming Phase 2 Technical Proposal.
Our drive to innovate and expertise in developing technically-focused content was vital to Kiewit shortlisting for this 180th and Giles Roadway CMGC project. Our efforts also positioned Kiewit as a strong contender for upcoming projects within the CONNECT Sarpy program.
