Rochester, MINNESOTA (WXOW) - Ames Construction, Inc. has been selected as the Construction Manager General Contractor Contracting team for the Winona bridge project. The company is located in Burnsville, MN.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation said this is the first MnDOT project to use the CMGC procurement method.
With CMGC, a contracting team is hired, in this case Ames Construction Inc., during the design phase to aid in estimating costs, assessing project risks, reviewing construction staging and maintenance of traffic, and tailoring the final design towards the most cost effective contractor means and methods.
CMGC has been used by other state departments of transportation across the country, including Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Oregon and Utah. Its use is growing in the transportation sector as a means to maximize constrained budgets and benefit from early involvement of the contractor during the design phase.
