Lumos was awarded two Project of the Year Awards at the 2015 APWA Spring Conference.
The first project award was in the Transportation Category Under $5M for the Robins Street Improvements and Utility Upgrade Project for Eureka County The project faced some stiff competition in this category. The key to the project’s success was in recommending to Eureka’s Public Works Department the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) process for the project rather than the traditional Design-Bid-Build process. The Robins Street Project was only the second horizontal public works project in the state to use CMAR. It was also the largest public works project in the history of Eureka County.
The second award was in the Environmental Category $5M – $10M for the City of Reno North Virginia Interceptor Improvements, Phase II Project. This project had numerous design challenges that we successfully overcame. The project was a collaborative effort between multiple agencies and entities, including the City of Reno, UNR, NDOT, UPRR, NDEP, TMWA and NVEnergy.
