PROJECT OVERVIEW ⇢
On January 17, Logisticus Group was tasked with government relations + civil improvements for a wind customer. Services needed spanned multiple locations in TX, but primarily the Wichita Falls area.
The value + main differentiator Logisticus provided this time was the coordination of the separate government entities, who needed to be consistently encouraged toward resolution + agreement in a timely, efficient + highly professional manner for us to execute the original scope of work.
LPG ultimately facilitated an unconventional agreement with the State of TX that fulfilled our customer’s needs.
The original scope of work presented to Logisticus’s team included the following tasks:
Engineering of plan sheets
For permitting purposes, all engineered plan sheets required a stamp from a qualified engineer, registered in the state of Texas;
Permitting all needed route improvements along State ROWs
This required working together with both TXDOT district offices and the Contract Services Group in Austin, who was tasked with drafting a new type of “Donation Agreement” never before used in TX which allowed a private company to perform construction 100% in the State ROW without owning the adjacent property when typically, this has to go through a procurement process with the State – and is handled solely by TXDOT once the contract and contractor are secured.
Relocation of signs in State ROW + along delivery route
Placing stop signs/road signs/etc. on TXDOT-approved stands to allow carrier to easily move signs as deliveries pass through.
Tree trimming + removal
Installation of civil improvements
These included turning radii on State ROW in 2 locations. We were responsible for identification of a civil construction company qualified + capable of performing the necessary work.
Signs and improvements always must be returned to original state when a project of this nature wraps.
