AMICO Uses HeavyJob & HeavyBid on Hyde Park Road
Located in London, Ontario, the Hyde Park Road is one of the city’s busiest north-south arterial roads. To mitigate this congestion, plans were made to widen the road to four lanes from Oxford to Sunningdale Road. Amico’s scope of work in construction included: road reconstruction consisting of the widening of existing two-lane road to four lanes; CN Rail bridge construction/rehabilitation; RSS retaining wall installed (150 meters high to maximum retained height of 7 meters, including integral noise retention wall); installation of 1200 meters of watermain (750/600/450/400mm), with 45-meter jack and bore under the CN rail tracks. Sewer work included the installation of over 2 kilometers of storm sewers (1050/975/750mm); private drain connections (where requested); curb and gutter; full restoration of sidewalks/driveways, new bike lanes and sod.
What makes it interesting?
The Hyde Park Road Reconstruction Phase 1 project was one of London, Ontario’s most substantial road-work projects of the year.
How HCSS Software assisted with this project
The integration of HeavyBid and Heavy job has allowed us to successfully analyze our bid assumptions and actual field performance to achieve desired results.Â The tools in Heavy job allow forÂ real time reports that allow us to manage the project effectively and close the loop back to estimating with filed performance data for the next project.Â This particular project was broken up by the client into two phases with separate projects.Â The ability to use our data from the field in the first phase will give us a competitive advantage in bidding phase 2.
