THE WESSON GROUP
SERVICES IN NY
Our design-build construction harnesses the skills of various partner
companies to deliver the best practices possible. Collaboration
between our partners, the design team, construction managers, and
owner is pivotal to design-build success.
The Wesson Group recently completed a $27 million design-build
project for the New York State Department of Transportation to raise
and replace six bridges in Ulster County, New York. For this project we
partnered with Harrison and Burrowes Bridge Constructors, LLC and
utilized our HBTWG joint venture entity. These bridge sites were part of
the Critical Bridge Over Water (CBOW) program, and by utilizing
design-build method, NYSDOT was able to replace and raise these sites
with federal funding. Had a conventional bid-build model been used,
the timeline would have taken too long, and the funding would have
reached its sunset date and been returned to the federal government.
