Roadway Construction JOC

Project Description

This Job Order Contract for Roadway Construction was awarded to West Point Contractors, Inc. (WPC) in 2007 with a base year and 4 one-year renewals, resulting in an average of 20 task orders per year. Work under this contract included bid-build, and design-build projects requiring West Point Contractors to work closely with City of Tucson engineers to develop construction design and site plans. In the first year of this contract, WPC was the low bidder on over 55% of projects, saving the City of Tucson over $750,000.00. As a result of our combination of high quality work, responsiveness to client, and low cost, the city awarded a second five year contract to West Point Contractors that extends through 2017. Work under the task orders included concrete foundations, structural concrete, concrete flatwork, PCCP, masonry, bank protection, retaining walls, asphalt milling, asphalt paving mass earth excavation, roadway lighting, barrier fencing, hand railing, irrigation and landscaping, underground utility trenching and installation, steel work, grading, traffic control, signage, materials testing and quality assurance testing. WPC has been consistent in its project delivery under this contract in both task order completion time and completing work under budget. WPC is able to do this by carefully reviewing each aspect of a project with the client, planning and scheduling production, and streamlining constructibility. In doing so we are able to increase production rates while reducing project duration. The teaming approach for constructibility greatly reduces the City of Tucson oversight on projects. It also has the benefit of reducing the inconvenience and safety hazards associated with roadway construction. WPC had over 65 task orders under this contract ranging in value from $65,000.00 to $1,125,000.00.  Each task order contained varying scopes of work requiring a variety of subcontractors and varying management involvement. WPC self-performed 72% of the contract labor, utilizing its own forces wherever possible. Federal funds and Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) funds were occasionally used on this contract requiring additional labor and subcontract reporting. This project received excellent ratings from the City of Tucson for schedule and timeliness of performance, customer satisfaction, effectiveness of on-site management, knowledge and experience of personnel, effectiveness of leadership, management and control of project, proposing innovative alternative methods and processes that reduce cost and improved maintainability and accuracy in invoicing, status and budget reports, and document management.
