The Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel Commission has selected HNTB to serve as Construction Manager for the Parallel Thimble Shoal Tunnel project. HNTB is a nationwide firm recognized as infrastructure experts, showcasing design and technical excellence on some of the top infrastructure projects around the world.
HNTB was chosen through a competitive proposal process and will provide the overall contract administration of the Construction Management program for the commission, providing construction management, inspection, document control, claims management and avoidance, risk management, safety, value engineering and engineering support throughout the Parallel Thimble Shoal Tunnel Project.
In August, four design-build teams were shortlisted to move forward in the next phase of this two-step, design-build procurement process and the commission issued the draft RFP for design-build services for the Parallel Thimble Shoal Tunnel project.
Proprietary meetings are currently being conducted with the design-build teams for the purpose of understanding each intended approach to the project as well as to obtain team comments on the draft RFP documents.
