Atkins to help deliver 460 Denver projects

Atkins is starting work on a Denver program that involves the delivery of 460 infrastructure projects.

It is partnering with the City and County of Denver to provide program management services for the General Obligation Bond Program (Go Bond).

The initial US$19m, five-year contract will see Atkins help the city manage the work to provide critical maintenance, enhance existing facilities and improve infrastructure.

In November 2017, voters approved the US$937m Go Bond Program and its seven portfolios, which contain a variety of public infrastructure improvement projects ranging from transportation and mobility to parks and recreation facilities. Construction of more than 460 capital infrastructure projects is planned over the next 10 years.

 “Our residents said ‘yes’ to significant investments in the future of our city,” said Mayor Michael Hancock. “As these community-supported projects get under way, the expertise and support we will get from Atkins will help ensure the success of the 2017 Go Bond Program.”

The Atkins team’s immediate task is project scoping and scheduling, working with city staff to prioritize projects within each portfolio and determining phasing of each task implementation. Scheduling and project scoping and prioritization will be critical in helping city financial officials determine when bonds should be issued.

Other program management tasks Atkins will provide include program management oversight, implementation and integration of best practices and as-needed project management support to project teams.

The city anticipates the first bonds will be issued in mid-2018, which will signal the start of scheduled Go Bond projects.
