The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and the American Council of Engineering Companies of Michigan (ACEC/M) presented Bergmann with a 2018 MDOT-ACEC Partnership Charter Award at last week’s MDOT-ACEC Partnership Conference. Bergmann, a national architecture, engineering and planning firm, was recognized for its role on the bridge portion of MDOT’s I-75 reconstruction project in Monroe County.

The project included reconstruction of 5.6 miles of I-75, along with bridge replacement and widening, culvert replacement and ramp reconstruction. The Bergmann team oversaw the reconstruction and rehabilitation of five structures on I-75 in Monroe County.

Bergmann was a co-winner of the Partnership Charter Award with HNTB, which led the project’s highway work. Both firms contracted directly with MDOT, which also received an award for its role in the project’s partnership. AECOM and Somat Engineering were subcontractors to Bergmann for the bridge part of the project.

“We appreciate the opportunity to work with MDOT to deliver infrastructure improvement projects throughout the state of Michigan,” said Jeremy Hedden, PE, Midwest Region infrastructure vice president, Bergmann. “This award is particularly meaningful because it recognizes the successful results from our collaboration with clients and partners.”

The MDOT-ACEC Partnership Charter Award recognizes project owners and consultants for their commitment to excellence and promoting an enhanced business partnership based on the ideals set forth in the MDOT/ACEC Partnership Charter Agreement. These ideals include mutual trust, effective communication, continuous improvement, embracing innovation and timely issues resolution.
