The Department of Transportation in Georgia (GDOT) has granted another three-year contract extension to Canadian professional services and project management company SNC-Lavalin.

Under this indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract, the firm will continue to offer its construction engineering and inspection (CEI) services for GDOT in District 6, which includes 17 counties in northwest Georgia.

This $35m contract will be delivered by SNC-Lavalin’s Engineering, Design and Project Management unit, which is part of SNCL Engineering Services.

The contract includes CEI services for construction projects such as widening and reconstruction, rehabilitation of asphalt and concrete pavement, bridge replacement and resurfacing.

The Courtland Street Bridge replacement and Northwest Corridor Managed Lanes projects are notable works within the new contract.

SNC-Lavalin president of Atkins, Engineering, Design and Project Management Philip Hoare said: “We’ve been supporting GDOT for over 15 years, helping to deliver its strategic priorities and steadfast commitment to providing the citizens of Georgia with safe roads, highways and associated infrastructure.

“This contract renewal allows us to continue and build upon the first-class work already delivered for one of our key clients in North America.”

In August, SNC-Lavalin was selected as the prime consultant to support the current development of GDOT’s Statewide Traffic Incident Management Services.

Last year, GDOT Office of Traffic Operations named the company’s Atkins business as the prime consultant for regional safety design services.

SNC-Lavalin specialises in engineering, design and project management (EDPM) for the infrastructure, nuclear and resources sectors.

The company offers services that include consulting and advisory, intelligent networks and cybersecurity, design and engineering, procurement, project and construction management, and operations and maintenance.
