Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) On-call

MENG Analysis maintains two on-call contracts for VE services: Statewide Value Engineering Services and the Urban Corridors Office in Seattle. The firm received an award from AASHTO in 2005 for our VE study of the I-405 corridor for the Most Value Added Proposal for Pre-Construction Engineering $25-75 million, primarily due to our recommendation to use more environmentally sustainable solutions to eliminate hard structures (i.e. massive vaults and treatment systems). 

Four of our VE studies focused on the Alaskan Way Viaduct (AWV). Due to the high profile nature of this project, maximizing stakeholder participation (e.g., City of Seattle, Seattle City Light, Seattle Public Utilities) was crucial-- particularly for the interface of utility infrastructure systems.
 
The first of these studies focused on the project team’s tunnel alternative and provided several options improving the construction schedule and minimizing disruptions to local business and the waterfront community.
The second AWV VE study focused on the South End corridor and the complexity of working in and around the operations of the Port of Seattle’s Terminal 46, the BNSF SIG yard and tracks and the interface with Royal Brougham and Atlantic Avenue. Construction phasing was an important consideration in order to maintain traffic and minimize the construction schedule and associated costs. This series of VE studies was the subject of a presentation by MENG Analysis and WSDOT at the 2007 AASHTO VE Conference.
 
Other projects under this contract include:
  • I-405 Stormwater
  • Alaskan Way Viaduct and Seawall Replacement 
  • Alaskan Way Viaduct South End Corridor
  • SR 18 (Issaquah Hobart Rd. to I-90)
  • Battery Street Tunnel Fire and Life Safety Upgrades
  • AWV Holgate to King Streets VE
