G.A. & F.C. Wagman, Inc. Announces Partnership to Pursue Dulles Metrorail
(York, PA) G.A. & F.C. Wagman, Inc. has teamed to pursue Dulles Metrorail construction projects. The team, Dulles Metrorail Connectors (DMC), is comprised of Skanska USA Civil, Granite Construction Company, G.A. & F.C. Wagman, Inc, Trumbull Corporation, Facchina Construction Company and innovative, trusted designers Gannett Fleming and Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson. Public outreach specialist Stratacomm will help keep the public connected with the project.
DMC formed a tailor-made team to design and build Phase 2 of the Dulles Metrorail Project for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) – and do so on time and within budget. Each of the joint venture’s companies has an extensive record of bringing in major projects at or below cost estimate and on or before scheduled completion.
“Giving our clients best value is the common thread tying our team together,” said Gary Winsper, project director for Dulles Metrorail Connectors and a senior vice president for Skanska USA Civil. “We do so by creating innovative logistical solutions, sharing risk and having a culture of safety, quality and ethics.”
With deep local roots, DMC firms have been key contributors to such successful local projects as the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project, multiple contracts of the Intercounty Connector, the 11th Street Bridge projects and many other on-budget, on-schedule projects. With extensive experience building rail-to-airport projects in challenging environments, the team has successfully completed projects linking John F. Kennedy International Airport to New York City, Minneapolis Saint Paul International Airport to Minneapolis and the Las Vegas Monorail.
The purpose of Dulles Corridor Metrorail is to provide high-quality, high-capacity transit service in the Dulles Corridor in the Washington, D.C. metro area. New metrorail service in the corridor will result in travel time savings between the corridor and downtown D.C., expand the reach of the existing regional rail system, offer a viable alternative to automobile travel and support future transit-oriented development along the corridor.
