(York, PA) On January 31, 2019, the Maryland Quality Initiative (MdQI) hosted its annual Awards of Excellence banquet during the 26th MdQI Conference in Baltimore, Md. These awards are open to engineers and contractors who successfully deliver public sector transportation projects in the state of Maryland. Wagman received three awards for their work on the MD 404 project in Denton, Md.
Wagman Heavy Civil, Inc. received the following Awards of Excellence: the 2019 MdQI Maryland State Highway Administration Award Over $5 Million and a Partnering Construction Award. In addition, Wagman received the 2019 MdQI Grand Award for Project of the Year Over $5 Million.
The $112M design-build project for the Maryland State Highway Administration consisted of the design and construction of MD 404 from a two to four lane divided highway from US 50 to east of Holly Road. This was a high-profile project with only 18 months allotted to design, permit and construct the nine-mile segment.
Greg Andricos, president of Wagman Heavy Civil, comments, “This project required extraordinary planning, constant communication, and coordination with multiple stakeholders. We are proud of our team for safely delivering this design-build project while meeting an extremely compressed schedule. We are honored that MdQI recognized our collective efforts.”
Wagman formed a joint venture (404 Corridor Safety Constructors) with David A. Bramble, Inc. and Allan Myers, Inc. to design and construct the nine-mile highway. Wagman served as the managing partner. To accelerate delivery, the project was segmented into three parts and each contractor was paired with a designer and responsible for a given physical segment. Project design partners included Wallace, Montgomery & Associates, Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson, and RK&K with Century Engineering for Independent Design Quality Assurance.
