Tuesday, June 29th, 2010 - Construction Hive
Construction Hive announces that its document distribution and integration is being used to deliver Quality Assurance test results for the US$1.02 billion DFW Connector road project in Texas, USA.

The Texas Department of Transport (TxDOT) is undertaking a US$1.02 billion road upgrade near the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. The project includes the reconstruction and expansion of two major highway interchanges along four highways, with a total of 5 bridges. At its widest point, (and including frontage roads), State Highway 114 will consist of up to 24 lanes (12 lanes in each direction).

Northgate Constructors has been awarded the design build contract for the project. Northgate has engaged Professional Service Industries, Inc (PSI), one of the United States’ largest engineering and testing companies, to perform the Quality Assurance testing for the project.

Construction Hive integration services will be used to publish the laboratory and field test reports generated by PSI, including the uploading of test results into TxDOT I2MS system, a mandatory requirement for verification and compliance.

“Using Construction Hive to facilitate the integration will provide us with an effective and efficient means of complying with this quality assurance requirement.” said Northgate Deputy Construction Quality Control Manager, Gordon Peterson.

“Meeting the data integration requirements of the DFW Connector project would have been very challenging and time consuming for PSI without the Construction Hive service and expertise” said PSI Senior Vice President, Shyam Veeramachineni.

“We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to work with TxDOT, Northgate and PSI on this important infrastructure project.” said Construction Hive Founding Director, Dirk Janek.
